The Ultimate Sacrifice

Uploaded by: teach50

Monday October 8, 2012

Valley Stream, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I saw this bumble bee on the butterfly bush just suspended like this all day. The temperature was in the 40's this morning. I'm assuming it has made the ultimate sacrifice for its species.

Nice macro Linda.

We are watching a garden spider around our
barn. She gets slower day by day and we're
looking at low to mid 30s over the next week.

Congratulations on your AC.

That would be the only way I could catch a bee on a flower - frozen!

Nice clear shot, Linda; great focus and DOF! I've also noticed bumblebees "asleep" on flowers overnight and even during the day if the temperatures are low. If it warms up, this bee might yet revive, but of course its days are limited in any case.

Update: Congratulations on your new AC!
