The other day I noticed a Bumble Bee that had succumbed to a pollen overdose either that or it was in a catatonic state.
Perhaps it was just his/her time. I did think “poor bee.” I did not touch it just incase it was just sleeping. I am allergic…so I kept my distance. In my old age I am becoming less afraid of them and don’t go ballistic when I see one.
We have very few bees around here, in my opinion the crop spraying in the vicinity has killed off a number of bees. Away from here there are bees. You cannot leave your windows down, they are insistant about getting inside a vehicle and are often seen right in front of a vehicles radiator…perhaps saying a one last good bye to relatives…or parts of relatives.
