Not to mention, imperiled.
As are we all.
Your local poet lady wrote this:
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
But it’s much better if bees aren’t few.

Indeed it is better and anyway,
bees were not becoming fewer in Emily’s day.
I’ve not had a reverie and I do say,
Love this 😀
Thank you. Bees are life. 😀
They certainly deserve a special day…. without bee’s no more food !
And without food no more us! They certainly do!
May the bee live forever!
Indeed! Without them we won’t last.
Every day needs to be a bee day!
If only all people recognized their importance.
I so agree! I hope that those who can will plant something for the bees (and not use pesticides, of course).
Wonderful close-up, Steve. Happily, my native plantings are buzzing with native pollinators, I love seeing all that activity.
I am glad that your garden is being visited heavily by pollinators. It is still a little quiet here in the valley, Eliza. Thanks!
Trying to do my little bit in my garden to help them with pollinator friendly plants and avoiding all pesticides, this just needs to spread to global agricultural practices! Have to start somewhere…
We are pesticide free although I am not sure about my lawn crazy neighbor so if they wander… 😦
We each do our part. It is a shame so many don’t take the survival of bees or the importance of natural systems as seriously as they should. In many cases, integrated pest management and natural paths are less expensive once farms are weaned off chemicals but convincing folks of that is difficult.

Great capture, love the detail captured on this little fellow.
Thank you, Ryan!
Bravo, Steve. The mighty bee….great shot. We must protect. And photograph!
Thanks, Jane! They are so important if only more of us realized that and did what is necessary to promote their numbers. Most are not our native bees but I guess at this point in time that is less important than just encouraging them to multiply.
Great Bee image Steve!
