This little bee became disorientated in the gales, and ended up on the floor of my lounge, looking very miserable. I took him onto the balcony, and placed him on an osteospermum flower, and gave him a drop of honey. He lapped it up eagerly, and within five minutes he was rejuvenated and took off into the distance.

V2 edges it for me Carol as your little friend looks sharper, well done for rescuing him.

V2 for me too, brilliant.

I always carry a small (hotel sized) pot of honey in my pocket and a tea stirrer to rescue stranded bees in this way. It gives them just enough energy to get back to the hive.

What a delightful story behind these shots, Carol: a rescue of quite a different type to your swimming pool ones.
And two wonderfully detailed shots, with V 2 marginally heading into the lead for me.
