Well, you can’t really see his knees from this angle. I was looking at some bee photos on the internet, trying to find out what type of bee this is but I didn’t see one that looked like him. Originally, I thought he was some type of carpenter bee because we have them in our yard and this one was the same size (and buzzed loudly like carpenter bees), but I didn’t see any photos where they were any color other than black…unless this is a mutant carpenter. Do you know what he/she is?
One of my cousin Deborah’s (whose name means “Queen Bee”) favorite charities is Heifer International, a non-profit organization whose goal is to help end world hunger and poverty through self-reliance and sustainability. One of the ways you can give a hand up (not a hand out) to the world’s poor is by donating honeybees, which will provide a family with a package of bees, the box and hive, plus training in beekeeping.
