He shared that he was harvesting honey when the poor bee fell into the honey extractor. He knew if he didn’t do something, the bee would die.

He decided to rescue the bee and placed it by the hive entrance. Walkosz knew other bees would help it and decided to capture the moment with a camera.

It took thirty minutes for the bees to remove all the honey off of the wings.

He added, “They produce amazing honey from blueberries in the springtime that has a rich dark color.”

According to the WWF, there are more than 1,500 species of insect pollinations in the United Kingdom.

They wrote, “Including the honey bee that normally lives in hives managed by beekeepers. Others, like many species of bumblebees, solitary bees, moths, butterflies and hoverflies live in the wild.”

They said all species have an important role in keeping the ecosystem healthy and they are also “essential for food production.”

Supposedly, more than 75% of the food crops in the globe rely on pollination.
