|Uddhava, whose bodily features and dress resembled Krishna's almost exactly, went to the gopis to deliver a message from Krishna. The gopis offered him a nice place to sit and eagerly questioned him about their dearest Krishna. Srimati Radharani was so absorbed in thoughts of Krishna that she mistook a bumblebee to be Krishna's messenger and began to speak to the bee in a sarcastic mood saying, "You have come here carrying a message for Me, anxious to touch My feet. But my dear bumblebee, let Me warn you - don't touch Me! I don't want any messages from your unreliable master. You are the unreliable servant of an unreliable master."
-Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead
Painted in 1985.
