Bumble Bee

I love bumble bees. Saw this lovely one this evening just buzzing around the flowers, going about his business. I got very close to him with the camera and he wasn’t in the least bothered. One childhood memory that really sticks out was when I rescued a bumble bee once. He had run out of energy and was very dazed and stumbling around. I put some sugar and water mixture in a jam jar lid and fed him. I could see his little proboscis drinking it up – it revived him and off he flew. I was so proud.

  1. Thank you. Sorry I have no idea what the flower is. It is actually some kind of tree or shrub growing out of the wall. Whatever it is the bees love it.

  2. Thank you Ellen. They are a joy to watch and they do move about quite a bit so its not easy to get a photo. Rescuing a bee is not the most glamorous thing in the world, but it made me very happy 🙂
