  1. I shudder to think how differently our landscapes would be without insects.....perhaps the day will come and wondering will be in the past as poisons accumulate.

    1. Yes, indeed Linda. The alarming decline in bee populations in recent years is evidence of that. Thanks for commenting :-))

  2. Your words are so true, Mitch! For instance, if there were no bees, I could not have honey as part of my breakfast... beautiful macro, as always!

    1. Thanks Belita :-)) Not only honey, but without bees many plants we rely on for food would not get pollinated.

  4. Good words. We have drastic problems in Switzerland with the diminishing bee population. they still havn't found out whether it is because of natural enemies, or the feriliser being used on the plants.

    1. I think it's a problem occurring in many parts of the world, and there seems to be a theory that it's an unfortunate combination of elements causing the decline, including a bee-parasite and the effects of various chemical agents.
