On a cold late November morning I’m watching a bumble bee foraging and gathering nectar from my garden cyclamencan operate with up to 30 people per group. The bee stays for some time flying from flower to flower:1618620402744,, pollen sacks on its legs bulging.
This was probably one of the bee’s final foraging forays because, after a very mild autumnThe area, the weather suddenly turned extremely cold as winter arrived right on cue and that would no doubt have finally killed off the nest and its occupants, including workersThe right direction, but not one that speaks t, drones and the old queen.
