Danger in the borage
This photo by beekeeper Jeremy Gibbons shows a crab spider with one of his honey bees. I like it not only because it shows the capture, but because I think of borage as such a peaceful, bee-friendly plant. Since I never associate borage with violent death for bees, the image is full of contradiction. The photo was sent to me by Jeremy’s friend, Tom Allen, of Rapid City, South Dakota.
