  1. Yum! Although i do often feel sorry for the bees, they work so hard to have much of it taken.

    1. The bees share. Nature is good about sharing. But, we do need to take care of the bees...and everyone else, including the bears.

  2. Nice haiku.A bee keeper used to leave hives on our property, but the bears got to them. XO

    1. Well, that must have been interesting! My great-grandpa was a bee keeper. I wish I had learned it. We do plant flowers to attract the bees, though! Hugs!

  3. Well done. I've always thought bears were wonderful creatures. I bet the bees don't always think that.

    1. The bees probably see the bear as a opportunist. They will take off and create new hives, though. That is often what swarms are all about...when honeybees. Not hornets or wasps!

    1. I bet you are right! The first wild bear I ever saw was in Minnesota, on Route 2, near Leech Lake.That was in 1982. The one this haiku is about was UP North in Copper Harbor. Cousins, probably. *wink*
