Search & Rescue Bee Squadron

These BEE never ceases to amaze me.  ;D

We have a birdbath close to the house that our girls come down to drink from on regular basis.  Over the past few weeks when I have been out and about I have rescued the odd bee that made a bad landing and was in the water.  I could never figure out though why there were no dead bees in the water.  To-night as  I was walking in the yard I could see the water rippling and headed over to make my rescue.  But to my amazement when I got to the birdbath, two of the other bees basically jumped in and pulled the other one out.  Amazing, I guess this explains no dead bees in the water.  Who new search & rescue bees........... 8) 8)

If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I would never of believed it.
