Bumble bee…

…from some viewpoints this may just look like a snapshot of an insect in a bush. And that is of course true – it is the rear view of ‘bombus terrestris’ – but in reality it represents so much more…

This innocent creature has no contemplation of the complicated world it occupies as it hastens from delicate flower to blossoming bloom – it’s feeding frenzy facilitating an orgy of cross-pollination. This tiny drone cannot see the beauty of the vessel that it drinks from or realise the important role it has in maintaining the intricate balance of the ecospherical manifestation that we call ‘life on Earth’.

It knows not the immeasurable value of the breath of wind that lightly transports it between each beautiful, fascinating engine of photosynthesis. A timeless factory that creates life from pure elements – air, water and soil. It is a miracle. A joy. A perfect moment in time and space…

Or maybe it’s just a Bumblebee’s arse.

I didn’t surf today. Too tired from surfing for the rest of the week…

More photos of naturey stuff can be found at my flickr pages.

    1. It fills me with great joy and a feeling of warmth knowing that you are responsible for shaping the young minds of Britain.
      Go surfing and wash your mouth out in the sea you smutty young man…
