This bee flower image was photographed by Alexander Sherer, 13 years old.
Alex has something in common with the artist Joseph Beuys who included bees in many of his works.
Beuys was influenced by the philosopher Rudolf Steiner who unfortunately predicted the
dire state of the honeybee today. Bees are very artistic creatures, who communicate by dancing.
They are the only insects who make a delicious food eaten by humans.
Sadly during the past ten years sixty percent of American honeybees have disappeared ,
and this trend is continuing around the world.
Alex, like Beuys & Steiner knows how important bees are . BZZZZZZZZZ
