Deleuze's fragment

Gilles DELEUZE , Dialogues, Flammarion, Παρίσι, 1977, σ. 8-9,

“the bee and the orchis give the example. The orchis seems to form the image of a bee, but in fact there is a become-bee of the orchis, a become orchis of the bee, a certain double capture [of the bee by the flower and of the flower by the bee] since “what” every one of them becomes does not change less than “that” it becomes. The bee becomes part of the mechanism of the orchis in the same time the orchis becomes sexual organ of the bee”.
