For walker of tightrope was he

      What an ending! This is a good piece of wisdom to bear in mind when walking a tightrope...

      It's scary how such small creatures can be so deadly.

      Bees are great in their right place, but they can be scary - and how much more on a tightrope!

      Is ' Stan ', the twenty-three year old ladybird? Am I reading this right? lol!!

      If not, then anaphylactic shock by bee sting, as alluded to by your other fine commentators can indeed induce a deadly reaction.

      Allergic reaction to bees can be quite deadly indeed! I heard of some cases!

      Allergic reactions to bee stings causes death and that is scary, sometimes you don't know if you are allergic only when it is too late do others see it.

      Was Stan performing in a flea circus by chance?

      If so, I did not know they were open to ants!
