This Honeybee, Apis mellifera, is on her way to work.
She has an important job, one requiring experience and a certain level of maturity. She knows where to go, what to do when she arrives at her destination, and how to meet her responsibilities.
She is determined.
She works for the goals of her community over her own personal interests. Her Apis compatriots benefit from her expertise in the field and various other sacrifices. Most of the time she works alone and unsupervised.
She makes a garden grow.
I’m delighted to join today with Anna’s Wednesday Vignette. Pop on over and check out other garden and nature musings.
