Requiem for a Bee Girl

Friday morning on the way out to the dog run, I chanced to see a Bee Girl on a lovely, late season calendula bloom in the big wine tub by the run.  Odd, I thought - it's barely 34 degrees and wet out, she shouldn't be out yet as it was much too cold.  But closer examination showed that she most likely alighted there the previous evening and then peacefully expired, doing what she was born to do.  It just was sad yet fitting, that.
