16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Aloe vera blossoms and a Bee
The Desert Botanical Garden is a place where not just plants have been gathered, but where bees choose to find sanctuary as well. To me, this photo exemplifies happiness. With its sunny disposition, yellow blossoms, and a bee doing what bees do best, nothing could be sweeter.
Show a bee some love, let them fly, let them wiggle around your plants, give them respect. Without them, our world would be a very different place, let's stop and smell the flower together.
