Invitation in to a World Rarely Seen by the Human Eye

Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg’s high-speed images from his film “Wings of Life” is without a doubt the most unbelievably beautiful imagery showing the intricate world of pollination, that I have ever seen, and far more beautiful than I could ever imagine. Inspired by the vanishing of one of nature’s primary pollinators, the honeybee, this short clip is a MUST watch, not only for the visual feast but also as a reminder that we are most certainly connected with nature so we need to nurture it. What can you implement in to your daily life today to help nurture the natural world?

“Beauty and seduction, I believe, is nature’s tool for survival, because we will protect what we fall in love with. Their relationship (pollinators and flowers) is a love story that feeds the earth.”

“We depend on pollinators for over a third of the fruits and vegetables we eat, and many scientists believe it’s the most serious issue facing mankind. It’s like the canary in a coal mine – if they disappear, so do we. It reminds us that we are a part of nature and we need to take care of it.”

“Always take time to smell the flowers, and let it fill you with beauty, and rediscover that sense of wonder.”
