Been absent from cyberspace for a while... long story, maybe for another day. In short, health severely compromised. Anyway...

While resting on the outside bench a few weeks ago, I spotted this bee (or is it a hoover fly??)
tumbling on the pathway.
It couldn't fly.
On closer inspection, I realised that one of it's wings had broken off.
But this resourceful creature
decided it could still walk!

For the next twenty minutes or so, 
I watched it climb up the stems of flowers, until it reached it's desired object.
It made small jumps from leaf to leaf,
or climbed down if the distance to the next flower
 was too great to jump.
A true inspiration.

ps... As always it is lovely to know that you stopped by to read my musing and follow my creative adventures. It would make my day if you leave a comment... preferably here, on the blog...? Many thanks & Lots of love Corina
