Noises of a bumblebee

As I was tending to a garden recently, I looked up when I heard a strange sound coming from a nearby rose bush…

this chubby bumblebee was not making his usual buzzing sound, but more of a squeaking sound, as he worked his way into and around this rose.  The typical buzzing sound is caused by the vibration of a bumblebees flight muscles, but I am not sure what the squeaking sound meant.

Perhaps his muscles were a little rusty due to the heavy rain we have been receiving.  Or maybe this particular bumblebee is a senior citizen with arthritis, he sounded much like my ankles in the mornings LOL
