Mother Nature is extraordinary!
Nature, my inspirational and creative influence, such as - the sea, the mountain, the elephant, the giraffe, the penguin. And, of course our wonderful trees, plants and flowers.
"In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand;
and we will understand only what we are taught."
Baba Dioum (1968)
The Queen Bumblebee shown in the video opposite is exhibiting behaviour reminiscent of finding a nesting site. As you can see, she is flying in a zig zag pattern. This classic sign tells us that she is seeking a suitable nesting site to lay her eggs and rear a new family.
As David Attenborough points out below, understanding the natural world is a wonderful thing that everyone can enjoy and observe.
"An understanding of the natural world and what's in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfilment"
