THE BIG LITTLE MISS BEE
Amazon Jungle, Bolivia
From a distance, it just looked like any normal beehive. Then assuming, as one usual does, that Bolivian bees sting, so it’s best to stay away. But I’m not one for assuming, so upon a closer inspection; I noticed right away that these are your average bees. Factually, this specie doesn’t sting. If had only assumed from a distance I would have missed out on seeing the Miss Bee up close and personal. I would have also missed out seeing their surprising little faces and their busy little important life.
It’s called a Miss Bee because it has no sting and itch. It’s know to many that the honey has medicinal properties, which is credited the ability to cure diseases such as cataracts and conjunctivitis in the eyes as well as gastritis, heartburn and anemia.
I’m certainly glad I’m a curious person by nature, I might have missed out on observing and photographing one of the coolest little bugs I’ve placed my eyes on.
