Leroy, here, thinks he's a sand bee. I'm not sure, but, since it's Leroy's story, we'll go with sand bee. Leroy starts his day with a very low altitude flight around his immediate surroundings and, usually, runs into a plant stalk of some kind which is why his buddies call him Bonking Leroy. Anyway, after he picks himself up off the sand after head-butting a plant stalk, he'll fly to the top of the stalk to see if Jack is home. Yes, sand bees read fairy tales too!
Leroy hasn't found Jack yet, but, he does tend to agitate a lot of flowers by walking on their faces. The black-eyed susans slap the crap out of Leroy with their petals, but, Leroy is a little slow from all the bonking and doesn't realize he is irritating the flowers. He just thinks the flowers are being friendly.
