This weeks photo challenge is scale ( I love bees. They are one of natures little wonders. These beautiful creatures are responsible for pollinating much of the food we eat – fruit, vegetables, spices, even coffee and cocoa. In fact, the production of more than three-quarters of world crops depend on insect pollination. So next time you see a tiny, little bee, think of what it does for the human race.
