BUMBLEBEES IN DANGER


(Taken with a 100 mm lens.)




Wild bumblebees are in danger in many developed countries
 due to habitat destruction and collateral pesticide damage.

Scientists have discovered that the abundance of some
species has declined by as much as 96% 
over as little as two decades.

  3. Great shot of the bumblebee. I'm always glad to see them in my yard because I know they are facing a hard time in the U.S.

  6. superb macro of the bee! I've read about the bees' hives collapsing. I'm afraid that so much toxicity has been spread our our beautiful earth that we may be losing more of what makes our world habitable than we could ever imagine.

  10. Wonderful image Randi! Surprisingly this year we have many more bees than usual.Possibly the weather is also a factor.

  13. I like how the bands of color are so distinct and the fuzz of the bumblebee is in such sharp focus. They are so special, I am glad to have an organic garden and grow plants they like so I can see them busy working.
