Cupcakes and Fuzzy Bumblebees

I was strolling along a sunny Spring sidewalk, when I noticed something fuzzy and cute walking in little circles in the grass. It was a giant, fuzzy bumblebee! Now, I DO mind fuzzy bumblebees buzzing around my head, but this little fellow was very busy walking his circles so I stopped to stare and take a few snapshots to show you.
The local ants were upset with him and crawled onto him, perhaps biting him. He shook his leg a couple times just to try and get them off.
Finally, tired of the angry barrage of red biters, he ran over to a grassy spot, spun around a few times, burrowed down into the greeness, and sat to watch the biters from afar. I don't know much about bumblebees, so I'm not sure what he was up to or why such a cute, fuzzy fellow would be sitting hidden in such a steppable spot. If it wasn't for the fact that he was bright yellow and black and rather large, I would normally have squashed him by accident.
I had to hurry on to work so I left him in his hideout.

My day at work started off pretty good, my co-worker climbed up to reach over our cube wall and lower a plate of cupcakes to me. He was like Santa Claus, but with cupcakes.
Armed with the yummy sugary snack, I was wired and ready to begin a busy day of work - much more busy than that little bumblebee sitting in his nest of grass.

maybe looking for a nest site? we have "solitary bees" locally, that nest in the ground on their own (the clue is in the name...)
