Artist's Description

Morning showers dappled the vegetation with crystalline drops, beautiful spheres that persisted in the high humidity that followed. Without much warmth even by mid-afternoon, insects remained sluggish, and moved to locations painted with nurturing sunlight. During the equally cool evening that followed, a Mixed Bumble Bee (Bombus mixtus) warms itself in fading golden rays.
