2011, Day 262 - Soaked

Another photo from Old House Dahlias, I fell in love with this bumble bee.  In grand Oregon style it was raining on and off and I managed to make it to the dahlia farm right after the showers stopped.  As I was exploring the amazing blooms I happened upon this sweet little bee.  He was obviously soaked by the rain and was busily grooming himself, fluttering his waterlogged wings and trying to find a high vantage point.  What I found so endearing is that he was reacting the same way to getting wet that my dogs do and looking just as miserable.  I wanted to give him a cookie but I didn't have any bee snacks so I made him into a supermodel instead.  To you I present Alastair, the happy bumble bee!
