A poem written for Solitary Bee Week 2019 by @Planet LhD Podcast on Twitter - A Brighton-based podcast exploring the strange worlds of PhD researchers!

I fly and forage, return to the nest

But who is this girl in a yellow vest?

She blocks my path with a great big net.

I don't panic I can get around I bet.

Dive under some bramble I will never be found

And I return back home under the ground

My life... You try #soliarybeeweek
