    It Bee Wet

    We're not the only ones who don't like it as rainy as at present here in the East Midlands. ( It's ok until all the barrels are full then it's a nuisance). We're finding quite a lot of bees that are being downed by this weather.

    This one is recovering on the back on my hand (heat) with the help of a little honey.



    It's impossible to identify to species until it dries out. For some reason no-one publishes identification photos of wet ones :P

    Surprised with it being that rainy that the bees are out at all.

    I'm surprised it didn't sting you! How did it do?

    A Bumble sting? Never known it and I've handled many.

    It dried itself and buzzed off.

    Yet one more downed Bumble. gave it some honey and it went.

    Photo's and videao shot with my little field camera so the video is not exactly HD but I think it's adequate.
