I’m assuming she is a queen, since only the queens are supposed to last through the Winter. In any case, when I first encountered her on a cold morning she looked still and dead, hanging from the Lavender ‘Sidonie’ flower by her front legs.
And then as the sun came out, she slowly crawled up over the flower and started cleaning the water droplets off her antennae.
Then she had a good look at me and the camera.
Before taking some nectar for breakfast.
And having another little rest while the sun warmed up.
When she took to the wing.
