My Solitary Bee

After a long period of not seeing any bees, I found this one outside my door. Her hind legs were pointing in the wrong direction, and she couldn’t walk or fly. Rather than leave her there to die, I brought her in and fed her. She stayed with me for six days getting stronger each day until this happened on the last day.
