Let’s end the week with something light-hearted. Hopefully these three short videos will make you smile. There’s no depressing news and no brain cells are required, so just enjoy.
GIANT FURRY BUMBLEBEES
See if you can relate… some busy bees just want to get in the door of their hive homes after a busy week, others just want to wind down and chill out for the weekend…
CLEVER QUEEN BUMBLEBEES – SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH’S LIFE IN THE UNDERGROWTH – BBC WILDLIFE
This is a short (2:16 minutes) and amazing peek at a queen bumblebee in the UK emerging after the winter… what an incredible creature she is. Watch her warm up enough to take flight…
CUTE AND FUZZY BUMBLEBEES OF THE UNITED KINGDOM
This video is as peaceful to watch and listen to as doing a meditation, and relaxingly perfect for a Friday.
There are 25 species of bumblebees in the UK, but only 7 species account for most bumblebee sightings. The 7 most common species: Buff-tailed bumblebee, White-tailed bumblebee, Red-tailed bumblebee, Garden bumblebee, Early bumblebee, Common Carder bee and the Tree bumblebee which is a recent arrival from Europe, but there are plenty already in the UK.
This is a lovely video for those who love to watch bees in action on beautiful, colorful flowers.
Bee happy and safe this weekend…
