I was bee-chasing in order to take this picture. One moment it was hovering on one flower and the next moment, it was gone. Fleeting indeed! To my surprise, however, instead of capturing one bee in this photo, there were two more bees that I did not notice at the time. Our attention can also be fleeting.
How long is the life of a bee? Honey bees who are busy in the summer live from 6 to 7 weeks, and bumble bees only a couple of weeks. One can call their lives fleeting too.
