Native bee on golden rod

There are a lot of native bees – this one is the Common Eastern Bumble Bee – busy in the garden working the early fall flowers. I find this image quite striking with the bright golden rod flowers in the sun.  No need to get out the macro lenses and tripod for a subject as large as this one.
