Nature's Place

Bee Again …

Struggling mightily in the water in the pot plant tray, I lifted her out.

It was late afternoon, so she had little time to recover and get on her way.

And she made an effort, nature never gives up before the end.

You have to admire the un-self-conscious tenacity. An indomitable will, albeit instinctive.

After a while I put her to the flowers, to enwrap and nourish her, if she was still able.

She explored a little, climbing about the petals, just finding her way.

And when it seemed too late for flight I put her to a already closing flower for the night …

I don’t know if a hive creature adapts to being alone for a night …

      She is indeed, in her way of being a natural innocent (of emotional considerations) creature.

    Entrancing, as usual.

    These are fascinating details. Makes you think a lot more about nature’s creatures.

      It is a window into the usually unseen. Amazing that it all comes about as a result of happenstance, not.

    Wonderful pictures again of the bee and I like the background colours! I can imagine that she makes it overnight, if it is not too cold outside.

      Thanks Almuth. Many do make it through the night if kept warm enough. But I have seen a hive mind creature display the equivalent of depression when kept from normal hive interactions.
