Friday Finds: Napping Bumble

I walked out to take a photo of my daffodils today and found this:
A bumble bee tucked inside a daffodil trumpet, sound asleep:

Typically, it's the Drones you find napping like this, completely motionless.
They only have one job, and, once done, they're otherwise useless around the hive, so the Workers kick them out. They really have little else to do, but sleep the day away.
(This is a Brown Belted Bumble Bee.)
