While I was cutting the grass this morning I noticed this bumble bee resting on the lawn. Earlier on the Sun had been shining but by this time it had clouded over and the temperature had dropped. I guess the bee was waiting for the Sun to shine again or having to generate the temperature needed to get its flight muscles working - somewhere around 30C.
It stayed in the same place for about half an hour before flying off.
