What ARE They Doing?

Bees gettin' jiggy

Photo by Author Joanne Olivieri

I went to the zoo to visit Wilbur a few years ago. I was walking around when I came across a group of children around 6 or 7 years old hovering over something on the ground. They each had their phones and tablets out taking photos so of course I had to go inspect and see what was happening.

To my surprise, I found two bumblebees either having a "private moment" or fighting and rolling around on the ground stuck together. It was something I had never seen before with bumblebees, so of course, I had to take a photo.

  • The zoo should have provided a private habitat for them just for this purpose.
  • Though even more interesting is the fact that 6 to 7 year olds had Iphones and tablets.

Thank you for reading.
