Capitalist Bees @ Work
These fine creatures are Leaf-Cutter bees, hard at work in the Drew garden this weekend.
They are clearly Capitalists:
- vital for the natural economy
- keen on private property
- each has its own home, but gets on fine with the neighbours (see photo)
- co-exist happily with other capitalists, viz the Drew family, and the Mason bees (the ones whose front doors are grey paste rather than leaves)
- will sting, but only when severely provoked
At present they take a dim view of home ownership, echoing Alice Cook's opinion, and accordingly prefer to rent from me. They are excellent tenants.
