A Tiny Escape

A couple of weeks ago, I went out late in the day to look at some flowers in the backyard.  There are some morning glories that have not been doing well, so there was only one flower on the whole vine.  That made it especially noticeable that there was a cute little bee all the way inside the single blossom.

The next morning, I noticed that the flower had closed up the way morning glories do at night.  Also, the flower was moving.  Looking closer, I could see that an insect was trapped inside and trying to gnaw its way out.

It took about fifteen minutes for the bee to escape, and another few minutes for it to dry off enough to fly away.
