There Are Bees That Sleep In Flowers And It’s As Cute As It Sounds
There are bees sleeping in flowers, and it’s as sweet as it looks
Are you afraid of insects? Are the bees busy? If so, you may want to see some pictures of bees sleeping in flowers. Can you imagine seeing a soft bee with pollen? Sleeping in a flower?
Photographer Joe Neely will probably change your perception of bees and you will certainly fall in love with these insects. Joe took pictures of two bees sleeping in a flower, and it’s the cutest thing you’ll see on the Internet today.
Accompanied by his fiancée Nicole, Joe went for a walk to photograph poppies. They stopped near a highway to photograph pink flowers and found a hidden plant of orange mauve. The bees hum and Nicole notices that some flowers contain bees, but the insects do not move.
Diadasia diminuta sleeps in orange mauve for a few hours. This is not a common “habit” for all bees, and few species do it after completing their work. Brandon Hopkins of Washington State University explains that bees do not have an eyelid, but they can not move their antenna and can even fall from one side to the other.
Joe approached the sleepy beauties to ensure their survival. All the flowers were busy and this bee was out. So he crawled with the open flower and joined the other bee. He moved like a drunkard and finally settled down.
Bees are important pollinators and we need them to protect our crops and consume them. About a third of the food you eat each day depends on the pollination of the bees. You may be afraid of these buzzing insects, but you really need them.
Without bees, we do not have enough food to survive. Let’s hope these pretty pictures change your thinking and that you care more about bees and their role in nature.
