#ilovebees

I love bees.  And the more I photograph them, the more I love them.

Bees are so important to our environment.  But they are also beautiful.

Close up you can see they have a fur like upper body.  They have beautiful wings. Their orange and black stripes are vibrant and shine in the sun.  Their eyes are fascinating, and the way they carry pollen on their legs is amazing.

Yes, I love bees.

❤ ❤ ❤

Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them, and he leaves them whole, undamaged and fresh, just as he found them.

The key to nature’s therapy is feeling like a tiny part of it, not a master over it. There’s amazing pride in seeing a bee land on a flower you planted – but that’s not your act of creation, it’s your act of joining in.

The happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist. For man it is to know that and to wonder at it.

    Without bees, our food production would plummet. I don’t like getting stung, but that’s the only thing I dislike about bees.

    1. I’m amazed at how close I can get to them and they don’t bother me. …yet!

        The only times we’ve had issues with bad results is when we got too close to their nests.
