Do the bees accept you as part of their life or do they get super defensive every time you try to do your job with them?
never thought i could consider bees to be cute... huh
Hey can I use this for r/RealBeesFakeTopHats? I'll credit you of course
Bees are cuter than cute. I usually have up to 50 at a time in my garden at any one time. Several different types of bees. Large black and yellow stripey fluffy ones. Small beige unstriped ones. I saw one completely black one the other day, first time ever, maybe a mutant bee.
They all completely ignore me and let me come within inches of where they are collecting their pollen. They have come to know that I never harm them or interfere with them, I just get on with my gardening and they just get on with their pollen collecting from all the flowers in my garden.
I do, I really do.
Best tiny buzzing puppies
I've had a profound fear of insects for as long as I can remember, and it has a huge blind spot for bees. They're so adorable, and are some of the gentlest animals I've worked with. I love keeping beehives, it's super rewarding, highly recommend :)
My dad has a bumble bee nest in his cabana attic. Is there someone who would gently remove them and keep them for free? I don't want them killed cuz they are nice bees and they don't attack us, but they do buzz buzz a lot.
Lol imagine if beekeepers argued as to who has the cutest bees.
"Shut the fuck up Karen my bees are cuter, your bees look like my mother in law"
Beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder.
I love bees and think they are adorable! Bumble bees are my favourite though. They’re so loud, clumsy, round and fuzzy. I try to have flowers in my garden every spring and I let the dandelions grow on my lawn for them!
I like them but I think they could be cuter if they were wearing some sort of hat or helmet.
I beelieve you are correct in their cute assetment.
Those bees are hella cute and also, I wanted to thank you for being a bee keeper? I know someone who’s a bee keeper too and I’ve heard that the job’s getting really tough because of adulterated substances in the market from China and such places. Thank you for giving us real honey, and thank you for taking care of the bees and appreciating them enough to think they’re cute! Cause honestly bees are so fucking important people don’t understand that
You have really nice bees.
Eeep! OP can you explain what is this picture? Are they drinking/hydrating?
I’m in CA—we get lots of tired bees from the heat and I want to help!
PS does sugar water actually help them?
Thank YOU for being a bee keeper!!
r/awwnverts would love this.
Have you named them
suddenly im not scared of buzzy fluffs
I honestly never knew bees were cute. Thanks for sharing!
Hello, bees! Thank you for all your hard work! 😊
Hello bees! 🥰
They can be cute. I really like bees but I still get irrationally nervous when they fly near me. I KNOW they won't sting unless provoked, but it is a visceral response.
We definitely need them more a LOT more than they need us.
