Beautiful. I know they are not normally aggressive when feeding, but I still get a mite nervous when I'm shooting them. Having one ball up on your leg and stinging until you forcibly remove them kinda sticks in your memory bank. The best way to describe a bumblebee sting is to take a ball peen hammer with a red hot needle on the end and hit yourself with it.
