Have you ever wondered what bees dream about? We’re all used to seeing these insects fly around and pollinate flowers. These pictures of bees sleeping in flowers will melt your heart.
Photographer Joe Neely and his fiancé Niccole were looking to take photos of poppy flowers when they something unexpected happened. When picturing the orange Globe Mallow, Niccole noticed that bees use it as their bed.
“I came over and studied it for a while and more bees showed up,” Joe shared with Bored Panda. “Soon, all the vacant flowers were occupied and this one bee was left out. She crawled over to this open flower and got inside with the other one. I was watching as he stumbled around almost drunk-like and then got settled in. Well, I never knew that bees slept in flowers but as it turns out these bees (Diadasia diminuta) sleep in the orange flowers called Globe Mallows.”
