To Bee or Not to Bee

Author’s own image of the soaking bee

Floating on his back, legs akimbo. I presumed he was dead. I was about to continue with my swim when I saw a leg twitch. This bee was alive!

I couldn’t leave him there to perish.

I removed my mask and scooped him up. He climbed to the strap and clung on for dear life, literally.
