Doodle of the Day - The Ultimate Sacrifice / by Lucas Novak

This doodle came to me while I was hiking in Joshua Tree National Park earlier this year. An aggressive bee buzzed in my face and around my head. I stepped a few feet away, and it followed me. I jumped back maybe ten more feet, and it followed again, buzzing in my face. So I ran a good thirty feet, and it relented. This happened on three separate occasions, in three different locations, by three different bees! These were the most territorial and aggressive bees I've encountered. Killer bees? Maybe. Fortunately I was not swarmed.
