5 – 27

Beneath cellophane

Sweet honey looked so tempting

The ants thought so, too

    There’s a story behind this. Bob was new into beekeeping and he had a Package of bees on our counter in the laundry room. The ants got into it. I thought I was doing the bees a favor by washing the ants away. Turns out I kiled the honeybees in the process. The bees drowned 😦 They breathe through their pores!!
