I was so excited when I saw this bee. I thought it was a queen bee, and it was sleeping on a flower before starting a new colony.
And then I asked someone who knew about bees.
”It’s so cute and fuzzy!” they said. Turns out it’s a young worker bee. The younger the bee, the fuzzier they are. My thoughts of catching a queen bee in the wild were dashed to pieces, but I learned somethings about bees. So I'll call that a win. :-)
