Photo of the Week: Don't Step on a Bee
In recognition of “Don’t Step on a Bee Day”, celebrated on July 10th, we present this photo by photographer George Ritchey.
The Alabama resident writes the cone flowers and zinnias in his backyard attract many bees in the early summer. This awareness day serves to highlight the importance of the common bee. Bees are instrumental to food production and biodiversity, and the health of bee colonies provide indicators as to the health of our planet’s ecosystem. With a large number of bee populations around the world in rapid decline, it’s vital that we each do our part to take care to maintain bee populations. Ritchey used a Sony DSLR A-900 with a 100mm lens.
