Me and a Bee

I spent a good 10 minutes the other day watching this bee clean itself. It had chosen the screen on my kitchen window as its perch, and I guess I'm easily amused these days because I was totally captivated. At times it almost looked like a cat does when it cleans itself, its front legs moving back and forth over its face, its hind legs reaching up to scratch behind its head, etc. Then when it was done, it shook its little "bee-hind" and peed! At least I think that's what it was - once clear drop of liquid dropped onto the screen below it. I've never seen a bee pee before!

Oh, I really am spending far too much time alone lately...
