It could not have drunk water by sitting on the side so it plunged into the water to take a cin Once it tumbled in, it could not keep itself afloat.

It was beginning to drown when a dove flying overhead saw its plight. Realising the danger the bee was in, the dove quickly flew to a neighbouring tree from where it plucked a leaf and dropped it in water just next to the bee.

The bee climbed on to the leaf, dried its wings and flew away to its hive full of gratitude to the dove who had saved its life.

I must do something to save the dove.” And so the bee flew down and sat on the boy’s wrist and stung him just as he was going to release the trigger of his gun.
