Busy As A Bee

For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life
For to the flower a bee is a messenger of love
And to both, bee and flower,
the giving and the receiving is a need and an ecstacy.

-Kahlil Gibran-
Bumble Bee - considered as social bee and is beneficial insect because it pollinate crops and plants. 

Africanized Honeybee - also called "Killer Bee", known to chase people and is agressive.

I was outside the garden and fixing my flowers and pots, when this "killer bee" approached. Good thing it didn't liked me! Oh, does it mean I am not sweet enough? Hmm..


Anyway let's get to know some interesting bee facts:

*The only insect that produces food eaten by man. 

*Bees have five eyes. Two large compound eyes and three simple eyes.

*Honeybees visits 50-100 flowers during a collection trip.

*The queen bee can live up to five years and lays 2500 eggs per day.

*The male honeybees which are larger than the worker bees have no stinger and they only do the mating.

*Only worker bees sting and it is estimated 1100 stings requires to be fatal.

*They communicate each other by "dancing".

*Bees can fly up to fifteen miles per hour.

*It takes one ounce of honey to fuel a bee's flight around the world.

*Its brain is oval-shaped which is only about the size of a sesame seed, yet it has a remarkably capacity to learn and remember things. They are able to make complex calculations on distance traveled and foraging efficiency.

*Honey is the only food that contains substances necessary to sustain life, such as enzymes, vitamins, minerals and water. It also includes an antioxidant named "pinocembrin" that helps improve brain functioning.

Genius! Infos taken here.

Since I got a domain name, one might observed that I have been posting images which I personally took. If one sees a watermark on the photo I posted then yes it is mine. If it's not, then I'll put the source where the photo came from and give credits to. 

As much as possible I took mostly random photos 'coz I'm thinking it might be beneficial for me to get an idea from writing a blog topic in the coming days (instead of doing rants and stuff) but lately I've been interested in doing some "creative images" so I think one must expect to see more of it posted here in this blog next time. That's all for now guys, thanks for reading, really appreaciate your visit here.

God helg alle sammen! Have a nice weekend to all!
