  1. Love it! The photographs are perfect! Whether sleeping or tired or just a photo being a still piece. It’s adorable. Pollinators are pretty much the only bugs I tolerate. Don’t know what the negative comments are for. It’s an article with a collection of photos of FLOWERS and BUMBLEBEES. Get! A! Life!

  2. To bee or not to bee. Many years ago someone showed me how to pet a bumblebee collecting pollen on a flower. Apparently these bees are friendly and not aggressive if you are gentle.

  3. I have seen one at my garden. Bumblebee fell asleep while working. and slept so comfortably for about 30minutes and then woke up and fly away

  4. I once saw the biggest bumble ever to fly one inch in diameter, it was so fat that it could only fly 12 inches off the ground, they are gentle and rest often.

  5. They aren’t tired! They are sleeping close to a nectar source because they are cold, and it’s actually quite a bit warmer there. It’s usually bumblebees, and it’s because once the temperature lowers to 50F it takes up too much energy and their nectar stores to fly.

  6. Simply gorgeous. Makes me think back to the first time I watched Bee Movie (Starring Jerry Seinfeld ( Jewish Icon)). I Love Bees almost as much as I Love Methamphetamine (and other Opiates).
