Human Footprint by MaaykeKlaver Human Footprint by MaaykeKlaver
"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, man would only have four years left to live." Albert Einstein

In many areas of the U.S. bee populations have declined by 50 percent or more. There are other parts in the world were humans have to pollinate flowers by hand, because bees have gone extinct. It is thought that this is partly due to pesticide use in agriculture (among other causes).

An amazing shot. I love the way the bee and the small group of flowers come out from a fading background, and the way the picture becomes darker and darker as soon as the eyes move from the bee and towards the edges. Symbolic. Quite a beautiful photo.

Thank you for that bit of information.
I love bees. :heart: If the bee becomes extinct, then we might even have to make fake honey, or their will be no honey at all....

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, I really appreciate it! One third of our food is pollinated by bees. How can we exist without bees!?
