14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Bee

I took this photo during fall while walking around a park. I saw the flowers and the bee right in the middle of them and thought it would make a good photograph. I think the concept of sustainable travel is important because it really represents this ideal of eco-tourism and conservation of the natural world for future generations by preserving the environment. More importantly, it incorporates the activities of tourists into the local economy in such a way that the economics of tourism don’t create friction with local people, local businesses, or native culture or traditions.
