I took this pic a while back when I was traveling through Michigan. It really doesn’t matter where you are, Bees have a direct impact on all of our lives. Without them, pollination would be severely impaired and we’d have a lot more difficultly breathing and eating. Basically we need them to live.
In China, they’ve killed off so many bees that people are are having to hand-pollinate fruit trees. Check out these pics from the Huffington Post – These Photos Capture the Startling Effect Of Shrinking Bee Populations.
And for a nice, easy read on how hives function, check out this blog from Big Island Bees titled: Bee Hive Hierarchy and Activities.
Of course, I like the pic because I think the bee is just beautiful. A perfect work of art with Nature as the master artist. Oh, the flower is pretty too 🙂
