I rescued this bee from the pool, then spent ages watching it close-up as it gradually recovered, lurching from one side to another, shaking each wing in turn, using its proboscis to lick its legs and grooming itself like a cat or dog. What a privilege to see such a thing right in front of me. Just managed to grab the phone (I was still in the pool) before the bee flew away. It’s a reminder to take time out of our busy bee lives (yes, pun intended) to observe what is happening around us. I guess I’m also learning that the discipline of posting on social media and this blog is making me appreciate such things more.
