JUNE 2007: Bee
The bee was caught in action near the giant stone onion in Parque Pedra da Cebola in Vitória, capital of the state of Espírito Santo. Every weekend and holiday, the urban park attracts many visitors – the majority from Vitória and neighboring cities -, who spend their free time to relax, enjoy a family picnic, or a walk with the children. In 2007, it was still allowed to climb the stone onion and enjoy marvelous views of the park. Fathers encouraged their children to climb the stone, while the mothers observed them with worried looks. Because of the possible dangers of injuries, it is now forbidden to climb the stone. Meanwhile, the bee was doing her work. She had landed in a bright yellow field of sweet corn. The – spilled – corn probably had become an alternative nutritive source for the bees, and who knows, sweet corn-flavored honey may eventually become very popular.
