Awesome Experience!

First, if you haven’t seen this story about a woman and a rescued bumblebee becoming friends, watch this:

And now for my story. I was out in the garden today, and I saw a huge bumblebee sitting on the ground, not moving. I touched it, and discovered it was alive, but obviously very weak. Thinking of the above video, I picked it up (which took a bit of courage as it was HUGE) and brought it over to some comfrey flowers. It immediately stuck out its feeding tube, and started eating. So I spent a few minutes moving my hand around from flower to flower. After maybe five minutes, as it seemed stronger, I decided to put it on a clump of flowers and leave it…but after it drank from the last flower, it turned around to face me, and stretched out its legs toward me! When I put my hand out to it, it immediately stepped onto my fingers. Sweet little thing….I sincerely believe it knew I was helping it! So I carried it around to more flowers…until it suddenly revived, buzzed its wings, and flew away. It would probably have died if I hadn’t found it, and I’m so glad I did.
