It’s been warm during the day, edging toward the 70s. In the evening, the temps can drop 20-30 degrees within minutes, and then drop below freezing. Bees caught out in the late afternoon like this fellow will be just sooooooooooo dead. I’m hoping that the yellowjacket queens from hell are all out in the late evening and aren’t able to take cover before being frozen to death.
UPDATE: I went to look for the corpse. Not there… Looking… Looking… Aaaaaaahhhgghhh! O.K., so… nature finds a way. It survived.
