One of millions and millions
Flying from blossom to blossom,

Bringing home food for the hive 
While pollinating the future.

Streptanthus carinatus – Lyreleaf Jewelflower (1 of 1)-2 art blog

These vase-shaped buds have pedals giving a tassel effect to the top of each bud,
opening just enough for bees and other pollinators to get inside the bud. This desert
wildflower has a tall slender stem and was photographed near Sabino Creek
in Sabino Canyon.

“If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.”
