Cee’s Photo Challenge: Undercover Bee

Cee’s Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.

Look carefully. I almost missed him as I was walking past. Under the peddles of this flower is a honey bee.

Pegasus Phyllis MooreThere are no honey bees in the habitat Endurance on the planet Akiane.

The first settlers on the alien planet did bring bees with them. The colonists intended to build hydroponics to raise their food. The bees were supposed to pollinate the crops. But the landing of the three ships did not go as smoothly as hoped.

One ship exploded in space soon after settling into orbit. The first ship to land was overwhelmed by a great storm. Monstrous waves battered the ship, swept everything and everyone on shore out to sea.

The bees did not survive the storm. 

The settlers did build their hydroponics, but they pollinate the flowers by hand with a special brush.
