Quote of the Day: M.K. Ash

December 5th, 2010

“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly,
but the bumble bee doesn’t know it, so it goes on flying”

~ M.K. Ash

I always love it when I download my photos and I’ve caught a bumble in mid-flight. They are truly amazing when you watch them buzz around the garden, I think they’re my favorite pollinator to see. I’m glad I have so many of them! We certainly could all learn something from the bumble bee I think.

What’s your favorite pollinator?
