The secret of the bumblebee that had scientist scratching their heads about how it could fly with such tiny wings is that if flaps them forward AND backward for double the lift.
The design of such a creature is an example of irreducible complexity. A bumblebee HAD to be able to flap its wings in both directions from the beginning of its species' existence or it would not have been able to fly. This is no small feat. WHY? Because the wing muscle velocity of movement for a double flap HAS to be able to use energy without overheating the bumblebee (like the hummingbird, a creature totally unrelated to a bumblebee). Hence, it has a very special metabolism unlike birds (it's far heavier in proportion to its wings than the hummingbird) and most,  if not all, other insects.

This creature is not the product of random chance. The amazing bumblebee, like ALL the living creatures we see in nature, was DESIGNED on God's drawing board.
