a bee of the bumble variety.

i like to save little existences.

bees get trapped in my house. i don’t know how they get in there but once there they can’t find their way out again.

all sorts of bees find their way in. if they are of the bumble variety i put my finger next the them and they will climb aboard. they investigate me and gather information with all their bee senses. their legs sometimes tickle me, sometimes i can’t feel them at all. they never sting me.

i take them outside put them on dandy lions. sometimes they fly away, sometimes they don’t.
