Woman Saves Wingless Bumblebee And Their Friendship Creates Buzz On The Internet



Last spring Fiona Presly, a library assistant from Inverness, Scottish Highlands came across a surprising phenomenon she would never forget. While taking care of her garden she spotted a bumblebee queen crawling around. What surprised her the most was that the animal had no wings, as it turns out the bumblebee may have suffered from a virus which had caused problems in wing development. The insect had very slim chances of survival but this kind-hearted woman came to the rescue.

Fiona created an enclosed mini garden for the helpless animal and treated her to some sugar water. Soon enough the beautiful friendship unfolded between them. Every time Fiona would stop by the garden her tiny new friend would emerge to greet her. The bee cuddled with the woman and seemed to light up when Fiona was holding the insect in her arms.

The earth bumblebees have an average lifespan of only 18 weeks but Presly was taking care of her new friend so well that she outlived her counterparts. Sadly, the friendship couldn’t last forever since the bee eventually passed away, leaving a beautiful memory to her rescuer.
