Earlier this summer I took the opportunity to visit one of my favorite bogs. This favorite is Jackson Bog.
It had rained the previous evening and a thick morning fog developed. Even by the time I reached Jackson Bog, the air was still thick with an envelope of cool moisture. As I started to make my way through the bog, I noticed that the majority of the insects and other small creatures were seemingly motionless on all the vegetation. Some made slow and gentle movements as if to try to nudge themselves from a deep slumber. I can only say that it seemed as though a spell of sleep had been cast upon this emerald glen and all the creatures that dwelled in it.
I knew it would not be long before all its creatures would be embarking on their normal daytime activities. Therefore, I decided to take some pictures of this slumbering Bumble Bee.
…a slumbering Bumble in an enchanted place dreaming perhaps of sweet nectar finds.
