My garden is very bee-friendly, and in return my bees are equally friendly to me.
When working in my garden, it seems that if a bee wants to attend a particular flower it makes no difference if that flower is just a couple of centimetres from my nose, hand or knee. With a gentle buzz to let me know they are there, they just get on with their work, and I with mine.
Yesterday I was sunbathing and a small bee landed with a buzz on a flower right by me - so close, his bright orange backside was tickling my arm ! Now that is friendly !
