Just chilling out..:o)

I wondered if it was dying,as it was on a Fuchsia leaf for so long..and seemed motionless.It then had a wash and brush up,and flew away :o)

Love them. I keep having to rescue them when they fly into our glass sun porch but never seem to be able to find their way back out.

Great shot B. I expect he was just resting, although it has turned a bit cold for them (& me! put heating on:)

I was outside today on the front weeding and noticed a poor worker bee walking on the slabs, obviously in some distress. I ran into kitchen, grabbed the squeezy honey, which had gone quite solid so I had to get it out with a knife. Mixed it with water on a teaspoon and ran out again. I kept putting dilute honey in front of the bee which kept turning away from it. Eventually, to my delight, she had a drink ...it's working I thought ...then she fell over, legs scrabbling in the air. I had to get her upright again ...then over she went again. In the end I got her upright and came in. I couldn't take any more. I promise you it does work normally, but maybe her wings had worn out:-(

Great pic Bloomer. I once thought a bumble bee had died, but it seems they just like a snooze now and then!

So do I ,Dwyllis.and I seem to do ok removing them from inside....a plastic jug,and newspaper..I wait till they settle on the window,pop the jug over it,and as it's flying around inside,I slide the paper across the top..and take it outside :o)
Thanks H.bird,Johnjoe,and Paul..it didn't even move when I was really close to it ...so thought it was a goner :o)

Cheers Shirley,and S.lad..I didn't expect it to come out as well as it has..so quite pleased..

He must have been,G.mage..probably saw a pretty lady Bee,so decided to spruce himself up .. maybe his last chance ! :o)We have had the fire on at times this past two days too...no heating yet though..another jumper instead :o)
Aww poor thing,Ba.. hope it revived ok..but you shouldn't have mixed it's drink..It probably takes it's neat :o))

Thanks Sheila..I'm sure they do..just like me,some afternoons :o))

I think they get affected by the cold. They look rather lethargic and are often mistaken for being dead!
Great shot though Bloomer!

Thank you N3..yes I know how much you love Bees :o)
I wish I had stood more in front of it,as one of it's little eyes is quite clear..would have been nice to have all its face :o)

Thanks Carole,he was a big one,when you compare him to the leaf of the Fuchsia...The Sedums are full of bees at the moment..so at least they have something to give them a boost..:o)

Takes great will power to stop me posting Bee Pics, and boring the pants off everyone :o))))

But then possibly you wouldn't have got the lovely shot of the wings. Think it is just perfect.

My goodness,Paul..you seem to have gone back in the Archives !I had to check if it was really one of mine at first :o)I had forgotten all about this one..I think you are right,he does look as though he might need a pedicure..He probably flew off to the nearest beauty parlour ! Thank you for taking a look :o)
