A wet bee on bluebells

Continuing with the rain theme. Here you have a shot I took earlier of a soaking wet Melecta albifrons, during a brief sunny spell. She was still alert enough to offer me her middle leg (a defensive behaviour of bees and bumblebees) when I touched her.

I must have seen that behaviour hundreds of times without realising what it was.

I love your insight!
