I'm looking forward to bee-dunking, also. It might be an exciting new business opportunity - selling "staggering bees" from roadside stalls.

I pity all these bees next summer. The slightest stagger and QI forummers all over the country will be nabbing them and dunking them in the paddling pool.

Apart from the nasty ones who'll be heating up the honey.

Well Posital you can't be too careful with these bees, they might not realise you are trying to help them and take umbridge about the dunking. They can sting you know.

I'm developing a bee-sized snorkel and mask to also sell on my stall.

Whilst in a traffic jam this morning, a wasp landed on my windscreen holding a bluebottle. It wrestled with it for a while then, once it had a firmer grip, it flew off again. I know they eat flies but I'd never seen it happen and didn't realise they picked them up and flew with them.

Because of their lifestyle, one might assume that bluebottles et al were less "intelligent" than wasps and especially bees. But its the bluebottles that seem to have the most nous when it come to finding their way past glass windows & conservatory doors.
