|Waterlily at Stonybrook Audubon Preserve|
In the beginning, I thought the flower was exerting some malevolent force over the bee, trapping it. Hey, this is a waterlily, not a Venus Bee Trap. But the bee acted so enchanted, so powerless, drugged, even corrupted by this delicous yellow pollen. Drugged. Like a hopeless addict. Not the busy little bee we see on the oregano blossoms.
Now I am wondering if there is such a thing as Water Lily Honey. Because I sure would like to get myself some. It must be wondrous and potent and maybe even life changing. Do you think a Google search will find it?
Again: who knew?
