a honeybee on a flower

This is a picture of a honeybee sitting on a Zinnia and, unfortunately, may be a hard-to-get shot in a couple of years because the honeybee population as well as the other pollinators are dying out because of pesticides that farmers use in their crops. I planted this garden to help the pollinators at least a little. If everyone did this, then we could save them. And us, because we can't survive without them.
