Saved one of these the other day. It was in very bad shape. Gave it sugar water and warmth by heating up a glass with hot water, putting the glass upside down over the bumble bee.

The warmth made it move, the move made it reach the sugar water. 30 minutes and it was FFF (fit for flight)

Before it flew away it walked around for a while on my shirt and my son's jeans

We missed it

Nice shot. You have to be quick to get these. One thing I can say about the bumblebee, is they sure make lot of noise and make you duck. But, I've never heard of anyone getting stung by one and they are fun two watch. They can sure make a small flower bend under there weight. I wish I could use the word fun andYellow Jacket in thesame sentence. There's only one way to describe them,ornery and mean- Bruce
