    I was walking around my flower bed and taking pictures and I looked down and to my surprise a bee was stuck inside of a daylily....He could not climb out of the inside of the flower...and it must not of been enough room to fly out...I am not sure..I watched for a minute or two and decided to tip the flower to the side so the bee could climb out. He climbed out and rested for a minute and then took off..Hopefully he will remember me and not sting me when I am in my garden.

    I saved a dragonfly today too...he was tangled in a web by the flowers. I always try to take the webs down but the spiders are busy at night.

    Nice save Sherry and great pics (very pretty lily) in the process. I love to watch the bees, they really are so cool. Bravo to you, pat yourself on the back for that one.
