Found this little guy when I was cutting the grass the other day. He was clearly struggling in the grass and in some sort of distress. Knowing how important this little fella’s are, I felt like something had to be tried. After moving him aside while I continued on with the grass, he continued to struggle. Another kind and compassionate soul joined me to try and come up with some ideas. She payed out a rose she was given for her birthday and brought some sugar water to see if it would jump start the bee. We noticed that the stinger was missing but the bee was still active much longer than expected. The bee layed in the rose over night and was gone by morning.
