Wet bumblebee

The bees are all hibernating by now, but since I am not trying to reflect the seasons accurately, here is a photo series of a bumble bee I came across on a walk a few years ago.

I was walking past a huge rose bush just after a rain shower when I spotted a rather damp bumblebee recovering from getting soaked by sipping on some nectar. Usually they buzz so fast from one flower to the next that you can get one photo at the max, but this one was feeling under the weather and I was able to get several shots of her. These are the two best:
