Feeding Bees / Fox Portraits

It took a while, but eventually it started to feed.
I'm not sure how well our treatment worked. The bee did start to scuttle around in a more lively fashion, and eventually it tried to scale the wall back up to the flower bed.. It fell off once, so we picked it up on a lavender stem and placed it at the top of the raised bed. Later we spotted it settled on a leaf, but still seemingly unable to fly. By tonight it was gone.
Another garden visitor enjoying the dry weather was the young vixen, Poppy.
Camera note: foxes and the first bee shot taken with the Canon 7D and EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM. The macros of the bee were taken with the EF 100mm f/2.8L macro IS USM lens and the internal flash.
