I Can’t Believe That There’s A Species Of Bee That Sleeps In Flowers And It’s As Cute As It Sounds

Bees are flying insects that are known for their role as pollinators and producers of honey and beeswax. They are adapted for feeding on nectar and pollen, so they can be found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants.

Behaviourally, one of the most obvious characteristics of bees is that they are very active, energetic and hard working. In fact, it is estimated that at least one-third of our food crops that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees. Therefore, people use the saying “busy as a bee” to describe a person that has great work ethic who moves about quickly doing many things.

Despite being busy with work, they also need to rest like any other living thing. Luckily, wildlife photographer Joe Neely recently captured some great pictures of two bees snuggling in a flower. His photos reveal a beautiful side of insect lives that we rarely witness.

“The story behind these 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.”

“Niccole was shooting over this since orange Globe Mallow plant that was hidden inside all of these pink flowers and she heard the bees buzzing about,” the 38-year-old from Phoenix, Arizona, said. “Then she notices that some of the flowers had bees in them but they were not moving.”

“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.”

“Well, I never knew that bees slept in flowers but as it turns out these bees (Diadasia diminuta) sleep in the orange flowers called Globe Mallows.” The Diadasia diminuta – or simply the globe mallow bee – collects pollen from its favorite food plant, globe mallow.  “I used a Nikon d750 and a 150mm macro lens along with an R1C1 Nikon macro flash,” he revealed.

Many people were amazed by the breathtaking shot and these photos quickly went viral. After checking out these photos, you will see how great the pureness of the wild is. If you don’t believe, scroll down to enjoy for yourself and don’t forget to share them with your friends and family!
