There was a nice mist falling this morning. Not so heavy as to soak through your clothes, just enough to leave the world feeling dewy. Knowing that the dahlia season will be coming to an end in the next few weeks I decided to make a stop off before my morning errands and take some flower pictures. Well, true to form, I was completely distracted by the insects and this bee in particular. He was just hanging off a petal and covered in dew with the morning light filtering though the clouds giving him a little backlighting. A typical wet Portland morning.
