Bees are Amazing Teachers

I wanted to share a story with you that I shared on Instagram this past week:

I learn so much from my bees. Today I had some sugar syrup in a container after filling some feeders. I watched bees cleaning out the sticky stuff, so I put some grass to help them out, but some bees insisted on struggling up the slippery sides of the container.

I saw one bee hovering on one of the bees that was trying hard to climb up the container and I thought “ why is she fighting for the syrup?” I’ve never seen them fight except when they are protecting their hive. What was more curious was that she was not fighting the bees coming in. Then I see her push the struggling bee out of the container. She did this to three other struggling bees and finally flew away herself. I choose to think she was giving struggling bees a boost. I love staring at the bees out in the garden, and their hard work, discipline and focus on community, is very admirable. I want to be more bee-like in so many ways.

Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week and hoping you have lots of bee-like characters around you,
