First Bumbler Rescues

Two wet bees warmed and sent off flying (they can’t fly if they’re cold. The rain surprised them). These are the same bee. The first one dried and flew off easily. The second wanted to hang out on my warm hand a bit. They always do, though I give them back to the flower, and they never sting me.

Poor wet bee on Sedum
a bit perkier after some hot air, (am a wind player, lol).
sitting a spell (they always climb on. I never “Put” them anywhere, just offer warmth).
