“Bee Safe!” / Theme: At Day’s End
A little about this photo…
It was a cold and rainy day when I came across this poor little bee. It was lying on the ground, so still that I thought it was dead. But then I saw that it did have some life, so I used a piece of paper to lift it from the cement floor and bring it inside the house. Into a plastic container. A quick search online gave us some idea as to how to save the bee.
A little sugar water (not honey!) and, if possible, a flower. A search outside led us to the only dandelion on the property. The bee didn’t seem too interested in the sugar water, but it immediately climbed onto the dandelion. It spent the night there. And in the morning, I put the container (including a fresh dandelion) outside in the sun.
Nobody actually saw the bee fly away, but it’s gone. I hope, to a full bee’s life!
