This woman became friends with a bumblebee queen she rescued
Fiona Presly from Iverness, Scotland, discovered a queen bee while gardening one day and noticed that it had no wings. She rescued the insect and even made a makeshift garden for her. Now, the two have become the best of friends!
“I found her when we were getting work done in the garden, and it was lucky I didn’t stand on her,” Presly told The Scottish Sun. “I put my hand down in front of her and she crawled onto it right away. I looked at her and thought ‘something’s not right here, she’s got no wings’.”
Fiona has named the insect “Bee” and posts pictures of her and Bee’s adventures on her Facebook page to show that humans can form bonds with insects, too.
“People have a bond with their dog or cat and even their hamster. I think I’ve proved here that you can have a relationship with an insect.”
