Good Night Bumble Bee, Sleep Tight
I found a bumble bee sleeping peacefully on my fuchsia this evening. At first I was concerned that he may have died but after a closer inspection I noted that his antennae and abdomen would move every now and then.
I did a google search. I hope this is information is correct - it seems that bumble bee nests can often be small so the males may find a flower to sleep on. I also learned that male bumble bees do not have stingers so it is OK to take a closer look.
Sleep tight little bumble bee.
