Insect Siesta: Tired Bumblebees Fall Asleep Inside Flowers

When bumblebees get tired from buzzing around gathering pollen for their baskets, they just crawl into a flower and fall asleep.

While many species of wild bees sleep in flowers regularly, honey bees usually work in shifts and sleep and nap in the hive although they may well stay out if they lost their bearings during the day’s foraging.

Bumblebees, on the other hand, flap their wings as fast as 200 times per second. In addition, they have an extremely fast metabolism, so they have to eat almost non-stop! It’s no wonder that they get tired and direly need a nap in the middle of the day. And honestly speaking, the way they fall asleep right on top of a fragrant flower is one of the most charming things ever.
