Where do Bumblebees Sleep at Night?

You'll be surprised at the answer

 

I've always been fascinated with Bumblebees. These chubby little creatures, it seems, can pack more activity into one day than I can muster for an entire year.

Just around twilight last evening - I wasn't sure if it was my imagination or a trick of nature -  many our resident garden bumblebees (Bombus hortorum) appeared to be mildly sedated, as if they were finished with their work day and needed a nap before heading back home.

Searching around a bit on the internet,  I found this short little article,  Bumblebees Sleeping in Flowers,  which matches perfectly what I've observed in my own garden with regards to the Garden Bumblebee . And while you're at it, enjoy my collection of bumblebee activity.
