14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Flower Bee

During a recent walk down by the Sioux River, I came across a swarm of bees in a patch of flowers. Among all of the chaos of the swarm, I wanted to focus on a single bee, that bee's role in the swarm. This single bee looks so calm, but when experiencing the swarm of bees, it is impossible to see what each individual one is doing.
