Description:

Found on my patio seemingly motion less. Gave it some sugar water which seemed to perk it up a littleand put it into some undergrowth.Could it be an early female come out of hibernation, it just seem to early and to cold with no obvious flowers in bloom. With the current concern of bees could someone advise for the future as a couple of weeks later I found a dead bee almost the same size.
