Resting Cuckoo Bee I by dalantech Resting Cuckoo Bee I by dalantech
Was kinda stunned to find this dormant little bee in my lavender because it was at least 25C. Coelioxys sp. Leaf Cutter Cuckoo Bee.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I went looking for dormant bees early in the morning and found this Cuckoo Bee sleeping in my Lavender.

It's interesting that they use their mandibles to lock on to an object but most of their body is suspended. Very nice.

It's how a lot of solitary bees sleep :)
