Red Tailed Bumble bee in a Magnolia flower.

Red Tailed Bumble Bee (Bombus Lapidarius)

When I first Spotted this bumble bee I thought it must be dying, as it was hanging with its tongue out, but after taking pictures from different angles, it climbed on to the flower and flew away. I now think it was just resting as I have seen them do this before, or if there is a sudden drop in temperature, whatever the reason it made an interesting picture.
