Tuesday Tiny Tale #21

The bumblebee trailed through the flowerbed in lazy zigzags. She dipped into blue and yellow blossoms.

Then something swooshed from overhead. In a second, white netting dragged the bee down and folded around her. A pathetic buzz nearly crumpled her wings. A human child crouched over his captured specimen and marveled at the frightened insect. He pinched his net to dump the critter into a glass jar.

The child, being rather young, was not careful enough. The bee squeezed her fuzzy self through a gap between the net and jar. Before anything could be done she escaped in full speed toward her nest.

The bee flew ragged wings and lived for a few more weeks.
