I thought i had a bust morning but just look at how industrious this little chap has been, his pollen sacks are brimming full. It is a common misconception that according to the laws of aerodynamics the Bumblebee should be incapable of flight due to its dense body size in relation to its small wing span. Science has since proved that the Bumblebee beats its wings 200 times a second and thus achieves flight. ( Although i think 200 times a second is also pretty impressive!)
I rather liked the idea that there are some of His mysteries we cannot unravel and that the Bumblebee just gets on with his life regardless. : )
Still i was thrilled to capture this tiny creation on my camera and marveled at his beauty.
I think i am right in saying he is a Buff-tailed bumblebee, Bombus terrestris.
