Ashlie Lennox, 22, was in her backyard in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, when she spotted a little creature lying motionless on the concrete deck of her pool.
Lennox knelt down to get a closer look, and saw a fuzzy black and yellow bee who was missing a wing. “I thought she was dead at first, as she wasn’t really moving,” Lennox told The Dodo. “I brought her some sugar water, [but] she was having none of it.”
Though the bee seemed subdued and was unable to fly, Lennox still felt wary. “I was very afraid and intimidated by her at this time,” she noted. But in order to get the little bug to safety, Lennox faced her fear, using a spoon to place the bee in a flowerpot.
