    Where the Bee Sucks...

    Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
    In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
    There I couch when owls do cry.
    On the bat’s back I do fly
    After summer merrily.
    Merrily, merrily I live now
    Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.

    Great Post! I love my bees. Unfortunately when I say "my" bees I don't mean that I have my own hives (I and my son want to but we aren't allowed). Where I live we have to have permits and government permission to own our own hives. Even then they regulate and control every aspect of ownership and can destroy your hives if you don't do things the way they tell you to. They can even destroy your hives because of encroachment into "industrial waters". The bees are in trouble that's for sure.

    Buen artículo, @Javier 🐝 beBee!! Ahora toca poner en práctica todo lo que está en nuestras manos para salvar a las abejas, desde plantar plantas "amigables" para las abejas hasta crear una fundación para protegerlas, tratando de influenciar para que se prohiba el uso de pesticidas perjudiciales y se fomenten los cultivos ecológicos.

    Para mí, lo que es un signo de que las empresas deberían participar es que, además de ser respetuoso con el medio ambiente, la agricultura ecológica se ha demostrado que es rentable.

    Me encantaría que desde beBee se fomentara la protección de las abejas, ya que además de ser nuestro símbolo, son cruciales y esenciales para mantener el actual ecosistema.

    Thank you for sharing such an important message Emilia. When I was pursuing my Environmental Science degrees I did a lot research on Colony Collapse Disorder. and it horrifying what is happening to the bee populations. On a positive note; there are some developing nations that are building their honey production. This had the added benefit of increasing bee populations. Since some of these regions are not as yet subjected to the high use of agriculture chemicals the bees are able to remain healthy and reproduce. It is sad to think that we may eventually have to have 'no chemical' zones in order to build bee populations, which would then need to be transported to agriculture areas to pollinate the crops. That is already occurring in the US. . California must import bees to pollinate their Almond and flower crops.

    Humans are a curious lot. Our proclivity toward self destruction seems boundless, even in the face of scientific evidence. We need to look no further than our President Elect's position on global warming for confirmation of this tendency. Thankfully, our ability to engineer our way back from the edge of ruin rivals our penchant for creating it. Back in the 1980's the destructive effect of chlorofluorocarbons on the ozone layer was a hot topic, which was addressed through a combination of legislation, scientific research, and new product development. So hope doth remain.

    The shocking collapse of bee colonies is a crisis that requires immediate attention. In my mind, this is an underpublicized predicament more pressing than global warming. Let's not wait for mass starvation to be the prompt for us to get serious about solving this looming disaster.

    Excellent post @Pamela 🐝 Williams. Sharing forward.

    #8 While I own a tripod, I rarely use it. I have found a stance that works well for me, and the Vibration Reduction on my Nikkor and Tamron lenses works well with the fastest shutter speed I can handle. The clip on macro lens was one of those generic brands and will probably break with too much use. It also had a wide angle adapter but I find my phone camera already has a great field of view.

    #7 I have very shaky hands and when I use a telephoto, I need a tripod in order not to get blurry pics. But this is crisp and sharp, love it!. Also, which lens for the phone did you get in that giveaway? I have been thinking about buying one called olloclip, but I think it wont fit on the phone without removing the cover. Again, thanks for sharing both your professional insights but also your passions, like this buzz. This is the beBee spirit!

    #5 A telephoto lens helps you get close without disturbing the creatures @Donna-Luisa Eversley. Consider me the bug, bird and critter paparazzi.

    #3 Thanks for visiting my Flickr stream @Froilán Pérez! You are right. I was given a macro lens for my phone camera as a giveaway at a trade show, and the little piece of plastic is impressing me to no end. The shot in this post was taken with a much higer calibre of lens however.

    I've visitred your flickr, good sir, and I could not help to notice that you have been playing with the macro lens lately, am I right?

    #1 Thanks @Mamen 🐝 Delgado. That's the thing about nature. If you just take the time to look, there are a lot of beautiful things to see.
