Can You I.D. This Bee?


Can You I.D. this bee, please?


It was buzzing around the garden last Friday night. I followed it around with my camera, and snapped this picture the moment it was still for a second. Is it a little Bumble Bee?

Hee hee, I was ready to see an out-of-season mason bee or something. What a cutie!

Cheryl said...

I think it is a little bumble and the cutest one I have ever seen......

Hello Greenwalks. Thanks for stopping by and letting a grandmother boast a bit. :-)

Dear Cheryl, I thought it was a bumble--I thought he was pretty cute too!

A Note To Bob:
I somehow managed to unwittingly delete your comments. I do hope you see this and resubmit them--I was interested in your I.D. of my mystery plant that I am calling "Aster".

I'm not very good at identifying bees, although I do recognize a bumblebee when I see one. I've learned to really appreciate them in my garden, but this has to be the sweetest bee I've ever seen in a garden:) Glad you managed to get a photo of it while it was still for a moment, Grandma:)

Perhaps it is a GrandBeeBee! I'll bet that cute little bee got lots of honey for Halloween.

Darling. I know who is going to be a gardener when he grows up!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Rose, I am nothing if not a very proud grammy--and you are right, he is the sweetest bee around!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

How cute, Nola! A grandbeebee! Tee!Hee! He got all my sugars!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Hello Lancashire Rose! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, this little bee does love to be outside. His favorite thing to do right now is eat dirt, so we have to watch him like a hawk!

Morning Glories, How precious!! A sweet bee indeed. And that's what grandmas atr supposed to do-brag and show pictures.


Thank you for your kind words on my post. Everyone has been so kind.

That's clearly the Bumblus toddlerica. I'd know it anywhere.

Beckie, thank you for letting me be a bragging grandma.

I think one of the neatest things I have discovered about the Land Of Blog, is the wonderful people.

Consider yourself Cyber-hugged!

Monica, You got it! You identified the little rascal!

This has to be a honey bee, 'cause he sure is sweet!!! One of the girls at work's baby daughter was dressed as a bee, also! I'm reading "The Secret Life of Bees" (which is great, by the way), so I've been very bee-obsessed lately! Thanks for entering my giveaway! Hope you have a sweet week! Patti

Deb said...

Cutest little bumble bee I've seen.
I found your blog through Lisa @ Greenbow. Your sidebar pics are adorable - I LOVE the one of your sweet dog in the sunglasses :-)

Wendy said...

Awww - that's one sweet bee! The only bee I'd really cuddle! LOL!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Hi Patti, thanks for stopping by. I thought The Secret Life Of Bees was an excellent book. Have you seen the movie? I wasn't going to go, but my sister and mother both told me it was very good.

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Hi Deb! I am so glad you found me and stopped by. The dog in the sidebar picture with the sunglasses is a hound/lab mix by the name of Bocephus (Bo for short). He patiently puts up with so much from us. He is a great companion except he steals all my tomatoes off the vines right before I am ready to pick them!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Hi Wendy. He is a cuddley bee--he hasn't stung yet! ;-)

oh chooo chweeeeet... Wish I could have that bee in my garden. My plants would cheer up.

I found you through Blotanical...very nice blog...very cute bee! Read your profile...I have two dogs, five indoor cats, five outdoor cats. We built an addition on our cabin and had my daughter, her hubby, two grandchildren and their dog live with us for about two years...so I understand your chaos! Good-luck!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

I'm not sure about my plants, Chandramouli, but I sure do cheer up when that particular little bee flits into my garden! :-)

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Hello Spooky Dragonfly. Thanks for stopping by, and all the kind words. No one can understand the chaos that comes from letting your kids move back in, except someone who has been there! Seems to be happening more and more these days. I try to keep a positive attitude about it, but some days it is hard!
