I have been writing a little story about a solitary bee.
Now, I know my little image is not exactly as a bee should be, but I thought he looked cute.
Why the story about a solitary bee?
Well, last year, we had a solitary bee that had made a little hole in the wall, just above our kitchen window.
It would fly in and out all day, and I was worried that it was a wasp, and that there was a nest. However, after doing a little research, I realised it wasn't a wasp, and that I had nothing to worry about. Apparently, solitary bees are not aggressive, and they are great pollinators.
