14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bee and Man

My husband loves animals, including insects. When I took this photo, he had found a sleepy bumblebee on a leaf and was showing it to me. I hope that this photo puts the viewer in my place-looking up close at the magnificent bee, with only a small sense of the comparatively huge human holding it.
