Fiona Presly and Bee, a queen bumblebee, have an unlikely friendship that defies the odds.
One day while digging in her garden, Fiona stumbled upon a strange insect that was larger and thicker than a typical bee, and also lacked wings.
The pitiful and confused creature caught her attention and Fiona extended a helping hand.
As it turned out, Bee was a defective queen bumblebee, born without wings and dependent on worker bees for survival.
Feeling lonely and doomed without wings, Bee met Fiona just in time.
Fiona gave Bee a home in a picturesque corner of her garden, complete with flowers and a steady supply of syrup and sugar water, which Bee loves.
The two spend a lot of time together, but Bee is still wary of other people.
Scientists are fascinated by this unusual friendship, as it is not common for a person and a bumblebee to form such a close bond.
They have asked Fiona to keep a diary of their interactions in order to try and figure out the secret behind their unique friendship.
While it may seem strange for a person to form a friendship with a bumblebee, Fiona’s story is a reminder that friendships can come in all forms and can happen in the most unexpected ways.
And Bee, who was once an outcast and alone, now has a loving companion and a home to call her own.
