Honey Bee - Apis mellifera

By Mendipman  
Taken on a dull overcast day in the back garden back in August. Unusual to see a Honeybee spending the night on a flower, more usually I find Bumblebees. The flowers is Cosmos.

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the 22 Spot Ladybird. Also many thanks for the Editors choice award on an earlier photo of the Marbled White, so very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrin
