Text - Bumblebee populations are declining due to a shortage of flowers to feed from and places to nest in the countryside. Bumblebees live in nests with 50 to 400 bees. Only the Queen hibernates in a hole in the ground. The Queen lives for a year, but the other bumblebees only live for a few months. Bumblebees only make a small honey like substance, just enough to feed on. They can sting more than once, but only sting if aggravated. They don't dance like honeybees, but may communicate by passing pollen between worker bees. Blaeberry 2016.
The Blaeberry bumblebee here is in work mode, it takes on a different look when the flower is removed.
