Hot again today at 95F when I got home, but the lawn needed mowing bad. Got it done, all trimming, blower to clean up everything, and then relaxed on my new back patio with a cold beer and some thinly-sliced roast beef. A bee started buzzing around, and he/she zero'd in on my roast beef. I watched it land, it walked around on it a bit, and then looked like he/she started to fly away with it, was grabbing the meat with it's legs and trying to fly off!
I finger-flicked him/her away:
...and thought nothing more of it. Grabbed another beer and a couple more slices, and AGAIN that, or another, bee started to steal my beef.
This is odd, I wouldn't think a bee would be interested in roast beef.
Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
