I wanted to investigate the life of bees through observation. As not a lot of people know the bees are in danger of extinction from Colony Collapse Disorder. This is a growing problem across the United States and even large parts of Europe. I wanted to take a different angle and try to find these bees in their natural habitat and observe them and observe where they are not. A big part of bringing awareness is to show the future without these little creatures. I also think humans do not know the impact that will happen if we fail to help these creatures. I sought out to show an aspect of observing bees gathering pollen from local flowers and then to show the flowers with missing bees because of the decline in the bee population.
