"Looking for a good luck charm for love? Look no further than the little humble bee, buzzing about and doing the waddle dance, he is a potent symbol of love in sweet abundance".
Legend has it that Bee is an ancient symbol representing Kama the God of Love.
Humble Bee as referenced above, is the name given to the Bumble Bee by no other than Charles Darwin, when observing the gentle demeanor of the Bumble Bee.
The Bumble Bees disposition is entirely different than the more aggressive Honey Bee...
Bumble Bee only stings if threatened, and Bumble Bee avoids contact with humans and animals and it's stinger has no barbs so she happily lives on if indeed she uses her ultimate defensive weapon.
Ahh to have wings and be totally free, that is the ultimate dream is it not?
The Bee has mystified scientists for eons as to how this little insect can possibly take flight taking into consideration it's size.
Physics dictates that it's just not possible, particularly with such small and fragile wings.
To this end, the Bee is a beautiful representation of the idea "to dream the impossible dream",and indeed these dreams can come true!
As it turns out, the conclusion to this mystery is that the bees wings beat so fast that it creates the energy necessary to lift the Bee and give it flight.
Therefore the Bee is a marvelous symbol of the idea that anything is possible... Bee seems to have the magic of believing down, he has conquered what so many of us dream of, to take flight and soar through the sky.
Humming and buzzing through the air the hum of the Bees wings eloquently symbolizes the song.... "I believe I can fly"...! And I love that it conveys the meaning "to have the height of excellence", a premiere shining message of royal Bee symbolism.
