Taking a break together from the hard labor of foraging.

So, I read the other day that bees often sleep 5 to 6 hours per day, often on or in flowers, and often together. They lock legs and snooze.

And glory bee:), my first bees of the season, as far as I can tell, were doing just that, while covered in pollen! They weren’t fighting, were very still. At the community garden today. (Had I not read the article I probably wouldn't have spotted the two nappers)
