As soon as bees and bumble bees are happy on the cone flowers, other animals also try their luck with these plants. A spider had stretched its web between the flowers and one evening I found this bee in it. She had fought again and again to free herself from the sticky tangle of spider threads. Even if she didn’t succeed, the entangled one was at the same time not deeper into it.
I took these pictures against the light of the flat sun. You can even see the rays of the sun from a damp spot on the bee.
In the end I couldn’t see how the bee was still tormenting herself and helped her with a small stick. Then she crawled over the boundary stones of the bed and flew away a short time later — lucky that the wings were not caught in the net!
