Bumbling Along

A Bumble Bee looks and feels fuzzy because of its soft hair that completely covers its entire body. You will often see a bumble bee covered in pollen because pollen is attracted to a bumble bee's pile by electrostatic charges. Unlike a hummingbird, the sound that a bumble bees makes is not made by its wings. Rather, the sound you hear is caused by its vibrating flight muscles.
