Smiling Sweat Bee
Photo and caption by Noah Fram-Schwartz
I found this small male Sweat Bee crawling around in a flowering chive. In the fast-paced world in which we live, it's easy to lose sight of the immense beauty which surrounds us. Just beneath our eyes lies an incredible world of bizarre looking creatures, vibrant colors, and elaborate patterns. While nature's most spectacular wonders are often thought to be far away mystical jungles or foggy snow-capped mountaintops, some of the most beautiful and intriguing sights are in our own backyards. I hope this photograph helps to shed light on a world which is so incredible and yet so obscure.
