The Bee’s Knees
“It’s like this,” Pooh said. “When you go after honey with a balloon, the great thing is not to let the bees know you’re coming. Now, if you have a green balloon, they might think you were only part of the tree, and not notice you, and if you have a blue balloon, they might think you were only part of the sky, and not notice you, and the question is: Which is most likely?”
“Wouldn’t they notice you underneath the balloon?” you asked.
“They might or they might not,” said Winnie-the-Pooh. “You never can tell with bees.” He thought for a moment and said: “I shall try to look like a small black cloud. That will deceive them.”
This week, Josh has asked us to show family, and Ese to show buzz. What has more buzz than a family of bees? Even Winnie the Pooh would agree these three blue ones are the bee’s knees.
Thanks to Josh R and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Family.
