The Misadventures of The Drunken Bee.


Recommended Posts

While working on Byblis cuttings over the past weekend, I noticed this extremely misfortunate Bombus terrestris greedily gobbling nectar for several minutes...

Completely drunken on the sweet goodness, The bee completely ignored my advances with camera in hand.

That's it, a little more to the front....

On todays' breakfast menu, we have fattened, nectar filled Bombus. Would you like fries with that? :tu::lol:

Enjoy!

It doesn't look like what I would call a Bombus sp. at all - where is its hairy bum!? :yes:

I always try to guide bumblebees away from my pitchers if I see them - not easy, though, and lots go in along with useful hoverflies!
