Fiona Presly of Iverness, Scotland, found the queen bee while gardening and noticed something was wrong.

"I found her when we were getting work done in the garden, and it was lucky I didn't stand on her," Presly told The Scottish Sun.

"I put my hand down in front of her and she crawled onto it right away. I looked at her and thought 'something's not right here, she's got no wings'."

Fiona and the wingless bumblebee she named "Bee" became inseparable after Fiona made a makeshift garden and accepted Bee as her lodger.

"She made sort of clicks, buzzy sounds when she was in close contact with me and was happy to sit and groom, eat, drink and sleep on my hand."

Fiona post pictures of her and Bee's adventures on her Facebook page to show that humans can form bonds with insects, too.

"People have a bond with their dog or cat and even their hamster. I think I've proved here that you can have a relationship with an insect."
