Caught this Bee on a Rudbeckia flower.

It had tried to take off from one flower head but was so loaded up with pollen it only dropped down to a lower head where it lost some of its load - that's when I got the shot.

Thanks for looking in.

Special thanks to * Phil_j * and * franken * for their User Awards on my previous image.
