Nearly-drowned Honeybee

Honeybee who must have forsaken swimming lessons in favor of other pursuits

By all accounts, this is the worst technical photograph to appear so far. But, at one a day, they all cannot be above average – in fact, just about half are going to fall below that threshold. So get over it.

I found this little one struggling in the birdbath last summer. I don’t know how or why she fell in – nor why she was unable to get herself out. So I fished her out and was glad when she righted herself and it became clear that I wasn’t going to have to perform artificial respiration on her. I’m thinking it’s best not to ponder that too long…

She did look pretty neat backlit and waterlogged. And she did end up drying off and getting back to work – seemingly no worse for the wear…or the bath.
