Vanishing Bees - original art by Andy McNally

I’ve completed my illustration inspired from watching the documentary movie “The Vanishing of the Bees.”  I’ve always had a fascination with HoneyBees, ever since I was a little boy and my grandfather had a few hives.  Not only did he love all creatures great and small, but he also realized how the bees helped his harvest as a farmer by pollinating the plants, flowers, fruits, and vegetables on the farm.  The HoneyBees were small but an incredibly important part of the farm.

Here is part of the synopsis from the movie’s website:

Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.

Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.

Please take time to watch the movie and consider how all of our planet is interdependent no matter how little the creature. Be mindful of the balance that we must help maintain and steward.  If you would like to help and can make a donation, go to the movie’s website and donate to the Save the Honeybee Foundation.
