Let Sleeping Bees Lie

Different species of native bumblebees and a carpenter bee sleeping in the bergamot. Scientists think that sleeping might help them, like us, solidify memory such as where the flowers are located.

@Mmolyson, Wonderful! Beautiful montage, excellent execution. Thumbs up
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

Great banner Moggs!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Beautiful and educational banner, Moggs. I always wondered what a bee was up to when it was just quiet in the flowers. They are having a snooze, how wonderful!

Fascinating banner; Interesting subject and quite educational too. Now I can understand why bergamot is sometimes referred to as "Bee Balm". It seems to have a calming effect on bees.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. The thing that surprises me the most when I find them taking a snooze is that many are under the flowers attached by the hooks on their feet. I guess they are less vulnerable to predation that way. I attached my two favorite pics, one on the bottom of a flower, and the other in the center all cuddled up. I saw another bee walk across the second one; he just shifted position and settled back down. It reminded me of trying to wake my kids for school in the morning! Hilarious!
