13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A Bee on Verbena

This picture is from a garden in Libo, China that sadly is no more. The visitors left the trails and crushed the flowers in their zeal to take pictures. It is a lesson in what not to do; sustainability means the destination will last without significant changes to the landscape and culture around it.
