Film Clip: The Hidden Beauty of Pollination
Pollination: it's vital to life on Earth, but largely unseen by the human eye. Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg shows us the intricate world of pollen and pollinators with gorgeous high-speed images from his film "Wings of Life," inspired by the vanishing of one of nature's primary pollinators, the honeybee.
Everyone has heard about bee declines, but with so much attention focused on domesticated honeybees, someone has to speak up for the 4,000 species of native bees in North America. Natural history photographer Clay Bolt is on a multi-year quest to tell the stories of our native bees, and one elusive species – the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee – has become his ‘white whale.’
Join the Xerces Society's Matthew Shepherd as he explores the world of bees. From wild mountains to urban gardens, learn about the bees that you can find almost anywhere.
Georgia is home to some 500 species of native pieces. While this film showcases the fascinating behaviour and value of the solitary bees in the United Kingdom, it's still a great primer. Follow a variety of different species through their struggles to find resources, avoid death and create new life. Ideal for anyone who loves our bees and nature!
