Butterfly’s are not the only ones who like butterfly bushes.
Meet Apis more commonly know as the Honey Bee.
The honeybee is a highly sophisticated insect that has evolved over millions of years. The earliest recorded Bee was found in Myanmar. In those early days, the bees were more like wasps, eating other insects rather than nectar and pollen. It’s unclear exactly when bees decided to become vegetarian but considering the choice between eating a fly and some delicious, sweet tasting nectar from a butterfly bush in full bloom, it seems like an excellent decision on their part.
