14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A bee on a flower
This photo was taken at Blue Sky Reserve in San Diego. This is a nature reserve that has a few hiking trails, but it's main purpose is to preserve the natural habitat of Southern California. With the bee population dwindling, this conservation effort is incredibly important.
