Bees – leaf cutters

Bees   leaf cutters

A bee-sheet cutter! She makes a move, for example, in a rotten tree, then flies to the bushes of roses, lilacs, raspberries or other plants, cuts out an oval piece from the sheet and, rolling it into the tube, carries it into the canal that she made in the tree. Then she again flies out and continues to fold pieces of leaves, giving them the shape of thimbles that serve as cradles to her children. Many, probably, saw on the bushes rugged leaves, but do not know who is to blame for this. In a thimble from a leaf, the bee collects the honey dough and lays an egg on it, and then closes the hole with a round piece of leaf.
