Saturday Photo; Where the Bee Sucks There Suck I

Sounds a bit crude, but as usual Shakespeare said it, if not first, then most interstingly:

Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip's bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat's back I do fly
After summer merrily.
Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough

The speaker is the sprite Ariel, and this photo has nothing to do with cowslips.  The bee seemed to be immobilized when I shot it yesterday morning, inspite of balmy temperatures which are supposed to be healthy for bees.

Whatever, the lovely wild sunflowers were gorgeous as this hot, dry summer finally comes to a close..
