[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Did you ever wonder where insects go when it rains? Some simply close off their spiracles while the water droplets cling onto them. Evaporation soon follows with each droplet decreasing in size until they are all gone. Then the insect resumes its normal activities. They do not move when covered in gigantic droplets of water (gigantic to them at least). Hundreds of bees representing numerous species were observed on my mint patch after I sprinkled them for a time. They simply wait to dry out. Many seek the shelter of a limb, leaf, or any object in nature that could afford them protection.

Many bees are caught in the rain and die, I know this as I keep bees.
Fascinating capture with the droplets.
