It was the second time in three days the bee had been rescued by the three-year-old and dad Sam Higham, who are from Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire.
Young Olivia was delighted and broke out in a massive smile when the bee lifted its middle leg to wave right back at hear.
Sam, 28, said: ‘It’s like she’s made a great new friend, and a couple of people have said it’s like a real life Bee Movie. It’s really sweet.
‘On Thursday I went to pick Olivia up from nursery and we found this bee on the side of the road. ‘We picked it up and brought it home and fed it sugar and water.
Once it was up and running again we let it out in our back garden. ‘Olivia loved it. She was really invested in the bee and interested in helping it.
‘I told her were we giving it sugar and water to help it and she kept repeating what I was saying.
