Bee posing on a bench

This little bee had tired himself out trying to find a way out of our kitchen window. I picked a dandelion head and brought it in for him to rest on. The bee started to bustle around eating up the pollen. Once this little guy had eaten enough I put him on the wooden bench outside where he kindly posed for me before flying away.
