Today, I was walking in my parent's garden, and I came across this beautiful bumble-bee. I got right next to it and it didn't seem to be alarmed in the least. I think I am used to honey-bees, because I was so surprised at how fuzzy these little critters are. The number of these bees is starting to decline because they cannot find enough flowers to feed from. It is easy to forget about creatures like these, but they are so essential to our ecosystem.
