Wonder if she is a teenager like mine? If so, she is very, very tired.
When did you last pet a snoozing bumblebee? Well, that’s too long. Get out while it’s cool and give one a little stroke. It will make you glad you woke up this morning.
It will. Trust me.
I have never thought of petting a bumblebee. I think I would have bad luck.
Try to stay cool!
I never heard of petting a bumble bee, sounds like a neat thing to do. I like your photo, being very focused in the foreground with the colorful background out of focus. Nice visual effect.
I don’t know, these 115 heat indexes are sorta fun. Yeah. It’s taken me years to not be so afraid of bumblebees. Certainly, there are more frightening insects out there, like those big blue / black wasps. I wrote a piece on overcoming my fear of the bees, and I don’t know if it ever made it online or not or just stayed in the print journal.
i never thought of petting one. i’ll have to try it. do they get lethargic from the heat or are they satiated or something else?

Being busy as a bee has made it dog tired.
What a great photo – and she does look sleepy on a hot day. The heat is getting to everyone.
Yes, Diana, I think it is. I know it’s getting to me. I miss playing in the garden, not just strolling it early morning.

Bumbles are such fun to watch, even when sleeping.
Aren’t they sweetest?
Love the sleeping bumbles.
Dee, I love them and almost always discover one on early morning strolls…No need to bee afraid they can’t sting. I love the native bees best. gail
Yes, they won’t sting you while they are resting or even while gathering nectar. They are gentle and don’t want to sting.
