Drunk on Pollen?

Look who I found passed out in the squash blossom this morning! They were in there for at least an hour, barely moving and then another bumble bee came in and woke them up. It looks like they had a good Friday night!
On another happy note: My Meyer Lemon tree (see July 1 post) has 2 blossoms on it. A tiny bee (? hover fly) was hanging around it this morning and I see telltale signs of pollen on the leaves. Fingers are crossed. BTW it smells fab.

Happy to hear this happens in someone else's garden too. People think I'm crazy when I tell them about he bees that have overnighted in the Iris blossoms.
