The United Nations designated May 20 as World Bee Day in honor of Anton Janša’s birthday, the pioneer who created modern beekeeping techniques in native Slovenia. World Bee Day raises awareness of the importance of Beekeepers and bees as pollinators, the challenges they face and their contributions in nature.

I wanted to share this video from Soulmates about a special bond between a woman and an injured bumble bee. A woman found a wingless bumble bee in the garden and took it under her wing. She created an indoor garden made of a birdhouse, flowers and other items that the bee would like. The playful bond of this bee and woman is heartwarming and inspiring. Have you seen any insects behave like this?
