Dumb or what? They really were blonde! I had never seen such huge blonde bumble bees before.  They were about 1.5” head to toe! There were two of them, and all they did was hover, looking directly at  me, and buzzzz very loudly at me…

They were so persistent that I went back up the driveway to get my camera, in hope that they would still be there when I got back. And sure enough, they were. And they were still hovering!!! If i moved, they followed, and just hovered again, facing me head on…  They never got closer than about 4ft and hovered at my eye level.  Quite extraordinary! SO I snapped away until the sun went down.

I thought I would share some with you so you would believe me…  They were gone the next day, and I haven’t seen (or heard) them again since…  Bizarre, but just so cute.
