The (insect) Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

by Geetha GT  – Relax!  Life is beautiful!

It is nice to find a place where you can just relax and get a free ride!

While dissecting honeybees for our experiment today, we found few aphids (plant sap sucking insects) resting on a bee’s body (they must have been tired after a long free ride)!

There was also an ant on the same bee wing as you can see from the picture below. In this case,  it was not just resting,  but its mandibles were clamped (to bite or to hang on?) to the bee’s wing.

Yes, there are so many obstacles in everyone’s life we should learn to realax like insects..
