I spotted this European Wool Carder Bee snoozing in some flowers around sundown and waited until the next morning to photograph it. But it was 23C (73F) and it didn't take long for it to wake up and fly off.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (set to roughly 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX RT (E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI and Clarity in that order.
