Another pool rescue yesterday, this time a severely waterlogged bumble bee. I fished it out with a twig, took a few pics, and placed it on a bougainvillea in the sun to dry out. By the time I returned to check that he was ok, V.4 will show you that he had perked up considerably and was gesticulating with his front leg, telling me to ‘b**ger off’ in no uncertain terms!
