moments in focus…

Hey, where are you going?

The title was meant to be humorous.  The bee is flying away in the picture, I guess he didn’t feel like being photographed. Silly little bee.

In actuality, it’s a very serious title.  Did you know bees are disappearing? Since 2006 bee colonies have been on the decline, and  not just by a small amount.  Yes, we want honey to sweeten our hot tea, but there is so much more.  We NEED bees.  The way bees pollinate is very complex, so complex in fact that it has not been duplicated by scientist- not for lack of trying.  Follow the link for a bit more info.

As for the picture, I actually like it.  At first I was not sure about posting it, but I like how the bee is disappearing, moving on to the next blossom.

    • My husband teaches at a community college and one of his students gave a presentation about it. It has potential to be pretty serious. I had no idea either. thanks for the comment. -Kim
