Partnership of the Day #2055

I was focused on the little worker when I took this photo, but I love all the shapes in the plant she’s collecting from. The buds and stems are all dressed in bristles, with bloodthirsty-looking thorns blocking the path upwards, but the flower itself is something soft and white, and a bed of coiled stamens waits eagerly for visitors.

While all the other bees kept leaping from flower to flower, this one waited patiently while I piloted the camera. Perhaps she fell asleep on the job.
