This evening I found a huge Bee just lying still under a rose bush whilst I was picking up leaves by hand. It's body was still but you could see its body pumping up and down so obviously not dead. In the past I always thought that these lone Bees out at night had exhausted themselves collecting during the day and couldn't get home so I just left them to their fate. Not any more. I recently read that if you desolve some sugar with water on a spoon and put it beside the Bee it will drink it. It did, this long proboscus came from the front of its head and drank and drank for ages. It's gone now so I am assuming it just had no energy to fly and found the strength from the sugary drink. I'm buzzing off now.
