Bumblebee Comes to the Rescue After His Friend Gets Caught in a Spider’s Web

This spider may have trapped an unsuspecting bumblebee in its web using electrostatic attraction, but another bee used its stinger to set the little guy free.

The amazing footage featured in the video above shows a¬†bee struggling to untangle itself from a spider’s web and preparing for its demise, as the spider draws in closer.

Then, out of nowhere, another bee swoops down and stings the spider.

We’re not sure whether the second bee was actually attempting to assist, or just so happened to be at the right place at the right time, but it’s still a captivating moment caught on film.

Unlike honey bees, bumblebees are capable of stinging multiple times without losing their stinger or dying afterwards.
