Bats on the Run
The Chase: Driving from the Ghaghra River toward Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh, India, I noticed a huge cloud of around 300 or 400 bats that began to scatter in all directions. It was only when I zoomed in that I realized that the flying mammals were being chased by honey bees. Eventually some of the bats settled on nearby trees with the bees hovering around.(© Satpal Singh/National Geographic Photo Contest)

The 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.

Scientists have recently discovered a rare, solitary type of bee that makes tiny little nests by plastering together flower petals. Each nest is a multicolored, textured little cocoon - a papier-mache husk surrounding a single egg, and protecting it while it metamorphoses into an adult.

NATURE WALK in the middle of a mega-city … was out walking the dogs today on a beautiful November afternoon.  Stopped to watch the bees working at a Palo Verde blossom.
