This little bee was looking very tired and sorry for himself, perched on an autumn crocus, so I gave him a drop of honey. He eagerly lapped it all up and then flew away, with no word of thanks Grin

A great series Carol, the detail in both bee and flower is superb. I too have come to realise that bee's are quite rude, never a thank you. Tongue
