    Do you know a bee when you see one?

    Maybe, maybe not. Go here and pick the bees out of a lineup:

    A wingless wasp. Gods above, somebody kill that thing.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    You know those little wasps that live in the ground and come out and swarm you when you step on a rotten log, the ones that look like tiny bees but are actually wasps because they can sting you over and over again, and do, because they are angry and mean?

    I hate those.

    Me too,one there is a horse fly(the very first one) and a cricket below the horse fly. Also the velvet ant,DO NOT get stung by that thing!!

    Re: Do you know a bee when you see one?

    I missed a few of them to be honest. Didn't confuse the horse fly or cricket though but had never seen those on the far right choices. The middle top center sort of reminded me of the smaller carpenter bee though which is often mistaken for a bumble bee. Which I admit I never really think of as bee's though they are. When I think of Bee's tend to think of Honey Bee's more so than anything.

    I'm anaphylactic to wasps. Those ones are actually the worst. We have prime ground wasp territory up here. I really should wear a bandolier of epinephrine whenever I go hiking.

    Same here. I only selected 4 thinking there'd be fewer right answers than wrong. At least the ones we picked were all bees though!

    I only got three right. It's very interesting because I didn't think the ones I saw could be bees. Didn't get any wrong though.

    I only got three right, myself. I thought the others were bee-like wasps. They're easy to confuse with bees.
