This one is the Sadest, we had a Bumble Bee nest in a compost bin, today we had a look to see what the nest was like and this is what we found.
All are unfortunately dead, not sure why though.

I like the first one the most though the turquoise/green stripe is a bit distracting.

Such a shame about the bees. Maybe the compost heap got too hot?

The bees were killed by a virus and they were susceptical due to forced inbreeding. It's been a very bad year for the wild bee varieties such as 'bumble' bees. As their natural environments has reduced the area between feeding areas and thus nests have greatly increased and this has caused the bees to inbreed and their immune systems have been destroyed.

I rather like the third one with the bee on the teasel. Sad tale of the Bumble Bees though...
