F’ing Bees

114_Fing-Bees“Look!” I said to Bubba. “It’s spring! The rosemary bush is covered with bees, busy gathering pollen. Look at them all.”

Bubba glanced up. “You’re right, there are a bunch of bees.”

“Just think,” I continued. “All those lovely girl bees; working away. Meanwhile, the guys are back at the hive, smoking cigars, hoping they get lucky and get to f*ck the Queen. And then die.”

(P.S. I know that’s not rosemary; it’s an artichoke flower.)

    1. I’m happy you commented on the photo. I had such a fun time taking pix of bees that day. And other days. I love honeybees and was blown away when I first learned all the ones gathering pollen are female. And that, yes, that IS the males’ fate.

      Well, except for the cigar part. I think.
