Shot: A population of flowering plants. Phototgrapher's note: "This is a handsome stand of Canada goldenrod. Flowers of this species attract many pollinators. In this field, there are thousands of bumble bees that were lethargic because of the cool weather. When I waded into the patch, hundreds of bees took to flight. Several bees can be seen in this image. The bumble bee is most likely the common Bombus bimaculatus. "
