Male orchid bee sleeping
Photographer: Ricardo Kriebel
Location: Inbioparque, Santo Domingo, Heredia, Costa Rica
When one walks through the forest, it is rare to see an animal or insect sleeping. I have seen birds asleep in a couple of night walks I have made but this orchid bee apparently asleep in the middle of the day was my first insect a find sleeping. Interestingly, it is hanging from its mandibles. You never know what you might find wjile walking in a forest.
