If a honeybee can be said to be frightened, this bee is.
The swarm needs a new home.
After a morning of searching, the bee found a suitable hollow tree, but with a complication.
It sits by the tree, perfectly still.
The tree is ideal.
The human seems no threat.
In fact… the human’s very thoughts radiate outward, visible to the bee.
“We would be stronger together.”
The meaning is clear: if the swarm chooses this tree, the man comes with it.
The bee will return to the swarm and dance to the others about this find.
