Anna’s Hummingbird ( Female )

Why do bees have sticky hair?

Because they use honeycombs.

Interesting Fact: Hummingbirds are strictly a New World animal. They fascinated the first Europeans who arrived on the continent. Christopher Columbus wrote about them and many wondered if they were a cross between a bird and an insect (at one point being called “flybirds”). Later, their feathers became fashionable ornaments in Europe (a practice that has thankfully fallen out of favor). ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Annas_Hummingbird/overview )

Bumblebee

Why Did The Bee Go To The Doctor?

It Had Hives!

Interesting Fact:  Only queen and worker bees have stingers. Besides lack of stingers, drones can be identified by size – they are the smallest type of bumblebees in the colony. ( http://www.softschools.com/facts/animals/bumblebee_facts/582/ )
