Bees play an important role in our lives. They are the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. It’s estimated that one-third of the food we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees.
It’s not easy being a bee, bees work hard and they need their beauty sleep as well. Recently, wildlife photographer Joe Neely captured two cute bees taking a nap in on a flower. The shot shows a beautiful side of bees that we rarely get to see.
“The story behind this photos [begins when] me and my fiancé Niccole went out to find poppy flowers,” Neely told Bored Panda. “On the way back we saw this patch of pink flowers just off the highway so we stopped to take some photos.”
“I came over and study it for a while and more bees showed up. Soon, all the vacant flowers were occupied and this one bee was left out. She crawled over to this open flower and got inside with the other one. I was watching as he stumbled around almost drunk-like and then got settled in.”
