Rescue a Weary Bee — Fan Of… #121

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how-to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is rescued a weary bee.

Whilst out in the garden collecting in the washing, my wife & I noticed a bee on the ground barely moving. We had read about people giving bees a mixture of sugar & water to perk them up, so I decided to give it a go. I made a small amount of sugary water & poured it onto the ground right next to the bee.

Weary bee

It shuffled its way across to the liquid & started drinking.

After a short while, it wandered around on the ground examining the fallen petals from the hebe above, before heading back to the sugary solution.

It had another quick drink & then took off & disappeared into the hedge ๐Ÿ˜ƒ So the sugar & water mix really does work & revitalises tired bees to fly another day ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. My husband is always rescuing small insects! He hovers around spider webs in the house and scoops up wasps from the pool.

Great to hear your thoughts ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
