This is only a short post which I felt like doing as I have a little free time. However, there are many longer posts on the way.

Over the past few days whilst walking around my School, I have noticed a very strange thing. Countless furry, little, striped warriors, laying either frozen dead from the cold or barely alive, with twitching legs as the only sign of existence. What could have caused this? I’ve never seen anything like it before. Could there be some vast pollution killing our tiny little friends, or is there some sort of pheromone leading to mass bee suicide?

Bee season depends largely on temperature and the seasonal patterns of flowers. After hibernating over the winter, bees awaken in time to collect pollen and nectar from their preferred plants; flowering plants also bloom in correspondence with the arrival of their most effective pollinators. Certain bee species are active pollinators during certain seasons, as native flowering plants and bees have established a relationship throughout their lengthy evolution. – The Orkin

Firstly, the temperature here is far too cold for the bees. They rarely come out when it is below 14 degrees Celsius (~57 Fahrenheit) and cannot even fly when it gets lower than 12.5 Celsius. Despite this, I see them venturing outside even when the temperature here in sunny England has had an average of ~4 Celcius (39 Fahrenheit) for the past month. As for seasonal flowers, all the trees are barren of leaves and there is no colour to be seen in English parks this time of year. What could have caused this strange event? I do not know. There seems to be no reason for the bees to come outside, yet they flock, only to end in peril.

There has to be a reason for why these bees felt the need to come out. I do not know it, it is most likely the result of some scientific reason that the folks at @steemstem can answer. Or maybe it is just the yearning for freedom, that us humans experience deep in our hearts. Freedom is a powerful thing, wars are started other it. It is an essential part of the human brain and the valour and longing within us will fight for it. These helpless bees, they wanted to leave the hive and enjoy FREEDOM. They wanted to fly around the air, collecting pollen for the queen. Or perhaps, they were forced out, in search of food and resources, in a seemingly never-ending cycle of work. Either way, there was some control over them, which could be ignored, hidden from, just for FREEDOM.

Respect your freedom
