I absolutely adore Bumblebees! I couldn't resist picking her up to get a few pictures of this beauty, as she buzzed around the wildflowers. "Bumblebee nests are much smaller than those of other species. They have a maximum of 300 to 400 worker bees, compared to the tens of thousands found in a honeybee or wasp nest. For context, there are around 25,000 known species of bee, though there are likely more that have yet to be discovered." "Male bumblebees don’t have a stinger at all, and female bumblebees aren’t very aggressive, so unless you go barging into their nest, you’re likely safe."
