Baby Honey Bee
One fine morning with bright sunshine, flowers were blooming quietly and happily. We, in a colony went in search of food. We all were very happy and amazed by colourful flowers all over. We started sucking nectar's here and there and took some rest for a while near the Hives.
At that time, one of our baby bees woke up from sleep and flew away from us in search of food to try different flowers nectar's. After a while, the baby bee forgot the path back home. Bee’s colony realised that baby bee is missing and blamed themselves and started searching all over the forest. They couldn't trace their baby.
The baby bee, while flying, got stuck with spider’s web and was struggling hard to come out of it. All the efforts went in vein. But it didn’t lose hope. It was waiting for the right opportunity.
“Fresh prey caught in to the web” Spider said to his mates and called all of them to kill the baby Bee. But the poor baby bee tried its best by cutting small cells in the spider’s web but didn’t succeed and sat quietly seeing down words. Suddenly, a mild breeze flew on it and able to recognize its colony of members. It planned a beautiful plan to splash its collected nectar to its colony members as Identification.
Without any excitement slowly it tried and hardly pushed its collected nectar from its abdomen organ and sprinkled down. By this, all the Bees sensed and recognised the baby Bee. At the end, all the Bees in a colony attacked the Spider’s web and killed in all. Baby bee with full of tears got engaged with its family and lived happily.
Moral of the Story: Where there is a will, There is a way:-)
