Default Bumble bee bundle

A Tradesman working on the neighbour's house asked me if I was photographing insects and when I said yes, said there was an interesting bug bundle on the shared drive.
This is what I found - a bundle of 4 bumble bees which gradually whittled itself down to a pair of mating bumbles- I was then able to move them to a slightly safer place on a leaf.

Thanks for the comments Stef.

Most flying insects have the extra simple eyes called Ocelli.
