A Paparazza among the Pollinators

It’s the end of National Pollinator Week—but it should only mark the bee-ginning of our celebration of the many pollinators (including bees, moths, wasps, birds, and bats) that make the fruits and produce we love possible and allow unmoving plants the opportunity to enjoy a little hanky-panky.

Others have done more to explain the joys of pollination, so I’ll leave you with just these couple of photographs and these links:

When it comes to explaining pollination and its value (for plants and people), Bug Girl doesn’t mince words.

And Rick Leider’s photos of pollinators in action are worth a thousand words.

And, finally, the great Isabella Rossellini has made a video that gives the worker bees voice.

I love these. And the garden is full of all kinds of pollinators, including ruby-throated hummingbirds.
