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.

  1. That is too cute. It does seem like bumble bees like to find a sunny spot to rest in, I had no idea it was because they may not have had room in the nest.
