Woman Rescues Bumblebee Queen, And Now They Are Best Buddies.

Would you ever consider befriending a bee? Chances are you'd say no, unless you enjoy going into anaphylactic shock from a bee sting. The fear of ending up in a hospital is enough to deter many from getting anywhere near a bee. After all, it's best to allow beekeepers to deal with them, right? But in the Highlands of Inverness, one woman by the name of Fiona Presly decided that she would turn a bumblebee queen that was down on her luck into a pet bee, and now the two have formed a bond that's got everyone buzzing about it.

Fiona Presly from Inverness is no beekeeper, but she has become the ultimate bee whisperer.

Presly, who is a library assistant, enjoys her time hanging with the queen herself, or rather, a bumblebee queen. Despite being two completely different species, Presly and her majesty are loving each other's company.

There aren't a lot of people who would have a bumblebee queen as a pet, but Presly doesn't mind.

Besides, where else is a queen who was born without wings supposed to turn to when she's basically all alone in the world? Clearly, her majesty was lost and without a hive, and Presly was more than happy to rescue her and show her some love.

Presly nicknamed her insect, Bee, and the two are so comfortable with each other that they cuddle.

Bee will sit on Presly's nose and won't sting her. Then again, you wouldn't either if she were your only friend. Girls have to stick together these days! The two of them are like two peas in a pod and neither of them want to be too far apart from each other.

Presly first met Bee while she was working in her garden, and she avoided stepping on her by accident.

She put her hand out and Bee crawled onto her hand almost immediately. It's as if she'd been waiting for someone to make friends with and that friend was Presly.

As soon as Presly realized that Bee was grounded, she made her a special place in her garden.

Now Bee gets to lodge in Presly's garden free of charge. Of course, Bee would prefer to eat, drink, sit, groom, and sleep on Presly's hands whenever her human is willing and able. Unlike most human/bee relationships, which might end badly, these two are completely relaxed with one another.
