To the people who commented on the bee's size and the improbability of an orange eating
This is a nonsensical sentence. Bees don't eat, they only drink. And it does mean a literal orange, not orange blossom.
Orange blossom honey (where the bees drink the nectar from flowers growing on orange trees, not flowers on oranges) tastes slightly of oranges.
This highly improbable, possibly mutant, bee could never eat an orange. It might drink some of the orange juice.
The bee is eating the orange, came back as wrong, to me. Instead it told me. The bee eats the orange. I still don't understand. What am I missing? Isn't it the same?
