Large bumble bees like this are sometimes scary to photograph because they'll buzz me if I bother
them too much. I've never been stung by a bumble bee in my many years of life - and I don't ever
want to be, either.  In general, though, bumble bees are pretty docile unless, like most bees or wasps,
 you disturb their nests.  © Carol Davis, 7-17-2012
