Once taking my son to an insect fair we saw thousands of interesting, pretty or often icky insects–it was visually thrilling but felt like a universe apart, all those spindly segmented legs and hard brick bodies were just so…other.
Then we came to the bees.
Oh right, we have insect brethren! This is us, we eat their nectar, they fertilize our food, a dance of life with insect champions–the sweet bees. Thank you, bees.
