A bee eating ripened grapes on the vine
A matured grapevine scales my wooden backyard fence. During this time of year (end of Summer) multitudes of critters enjoy the sweet juice of ripened grapes. This small honey bee was particularly enthralled with a grape whose skin has split from over-ripening, and didn't move from this position for several minutes; providing the perfect opportunity for multiple shots from multiple angles.
