A newly emerged bumblebee queen foraging on primroses in my garden

A bumblebee’s life cycle video aimed at children, that also gets the message across to us adults! It explains the complete bumblebee life cycle and is a nice animated overview of a complex issue. Although, in reality bumblebee queens lives are  fraught with many dangers and failures, especially for a newly emerged queen. I hope you enjoy it, whether adult or child!! 😉   I did so what does that say about me!!!!
