    Default A sleeping beauty

    ID: Cuckoo bee(ID confirmation appreciated)

    In a typical festive mood, this beauty seemed to be in a very lazy mood, sleeping thru the wintery cold mornings. Spotted on the tip of a twig, this bee seemed to be snoozing thru the early morning, probably waiting for the sun light to bask-in and heating up itself to flutter around for some fresh nectar. The bee was so deep in sleep that it was hardly bothered when accidentally one of the twigs lashed onto the twig on which it was sleeping, and it kept on in the death grip stance of it, aiding me to get this frame. Cold mornings seem to be in favour of us, the early morning photographers.

    A very unique pose captured. It looks so different. Agree the cold morning has made it to stay and conserve its energy. Did you try a vertical composition? Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting pose. I am not sure many people will be able to guess that this is a bee. A bit more depth of field would have been nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
