Ha! Ha! Thanks folks It did smart a bit, however, I lived to tell the tale - what a trooper, eh - and so did the bee (although for a fleeting moment I was tempted to merge its *rse with its face courtesy of my size 9, although that wouldn't have been very bee friendly now, would it). From the bee's perspective I can imagine an armpit isn't the best place to find yourself......
And as it for it being a 'kiss', isn't that a bit like punching someone in the face and then saying you were just patting them on the head?
Glad it was only a smallish bee, though. Took a picture of a right monster further up the garden, earlier, trying to get itself into foxglove flower. Glad it wasn't that one I can tell you. Might try and post a picture of it as it was quite something.
As for motorbikes, bees and helmet visors....sounds like a recipe for a very unpleasant accident!!!
