Found this wonderful blog --homeofthebudds--on my travels this a.m. The post is "do bees sleep?" Check out the amazing pictures. One of the local blog readers said the bees are not asleep, they're drunk. I dunno anything at all about bees sleeping out of the hive at night, but I really love this. The local blogger who posted this on our town website said she finds sleeping bees in her flowers every morning!
