Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


There were loads of thistle flowers in this field, but all bees were fighting for a spot on these two. Must’ve been particularly tasty! Or do they follow some kind of ‘the busiest restaurants are the best ones’ logic?

  1. No, no, they tell their friends and relatives which flowers taste best. You know, like :”you should try these two, there’s just a hint of oregano and a lick of tarragon in them, it’s delicious!”. Bees are connoisseurs, I think. πŸ™‚
