2012, Day 195 - Nesting in petals

This morning I awoke to an overcast sky and cool weather, it was refreshing!  While walking the dogs I noticed a number of bumble bees still resting in flowers and this guy seems to have picked the best spot of all nestled in a fragrant tea rose.  While artificial scents can be cloying and overpowering the real thing is rarely so and he has the extra protection of thorns and a flower hidden in the protective branches hiding him from peckish birds.
