Mining Bee

My first bug of the year and I am not sure if he was resting from digging his burrow or freezing from the crisp northerly breeze - only 11 degrees here today.

Lovely to see your macro work, again, Viv. Super detail and wonderful colour. Brrr - that is cold, the poor little bee. We are expecting another snow storm on Thursday. I think I'll build an iglooSmileCat
