I'm not crazy about bees or insects in general, but I like watching them and would not harm them intentionally. Roaches creep me out, though.
I was hanging out in the back yard yesterday afternoon and found a bee in my tea. I spooned it out and, after cleaning up a bit, it seem to be ok. This reminded me of something I haven't thought about in a long time.
I was working for a membership organization a few years ago and we were on a retreat with some members, planning for the next year's activities. We were all sitting in groups outside and I noticed a bee buzzing around our table for a while. It flew into an empty glass and someone placed a coaster or something over the glass. I was thinking, what? why did you do that? Everyone just continued talking and I sat there staring at this bee who was trapped inside the glass.
A few minutes passed and all I could focus on was the fact that the bee was desperately trying to get out of the glass, but no one else seemed to notice or care. I finally got up, took the glass over to the grass, and released it. I got a few dirty looks when I returned to the table, but the bee was free and I was happy about it.
