Wordless Wednesday: Pollinators

June 17, 2015 pollinators 013


“Not a single bee has ever sent you an invoice.

And that is part of the problem –

because most of what comes to us from nature is free,

because it is not invoiced, because it is not priced,

because it is not traded in markets,

we tend to ignore it.”


Pavan Sukhdev, United Nations report, The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity.

  2. A wonderful celebration of our Very Important Creatures – they certainly need all the help we can give them.

  3. This is a great (and ufortunately largely true) quote, and lovely photos to match!

  4. Great post about our little buzzy friends. Excellent quote and so right on! Where do you hear about all these ‘weeks?’ You always are linked in to these observances. 🙂

    • Thank you, Eliza 😉 I hope you are going to show some of the buzzies who visit your garden, as well. I always enjoy seeing your garden! I can take no credit, other than to follow Jane at “Just Another Nature Enthusiast.” She has drawn attention to Pollinator Week, and I linked back to her post. If you don’t yet know Jane, you’ll find a kindred spirit 😉 ❤ ❤ ❤ WG

  5. Beautiful photos as always! Love the little winged creatures – they have an invaluable role in our world. Blessings to you, Sarah

    • Thank you, Sarah. Will you be joining in with a pollinator post this week? If you do, please link back to Jane at “Just Another Nature Enthusiast.” I believe you will like her and her blog a lot 😉 Hope you are enjoying this gorgeous day- WG

  6. Wow! That quote and your photos, just about says it all!

    • Thank you, Tina 😉 We saw a story on local news today about a family’s bee hives destroyed by a rogue bear. There are so many obstacles for beekeepers in addition to various diseases. We all need to remain more aware, and do our small part to help maintain our pollinators 😉

  7. All so pretty! Love those pollinators ❤

    • You’re fast, Jane. It’s been up, seconds??? Thank you! I took 4x that many photos, but the focus wasn’t clear on the little insects in so many. Love to hear them buzzing and see them dancing on the air in pursuit of nectar 🙂
