Happy Friday! It's a beautiful spring day outside in Colorado, despite the *COUGH* snowday of just two days ago!
It's also Illustration Friday! (applause*applause). This week's prompt is "linked". You may think fences, you may think world wide web, you may think chains, you may think handcuffs - if you're into that sort of thing...
I'm thinking honeybees.
Behold the industrious honeybee, buzzing from flower to flower, collecting pollen and thereby reproducing the plants thereby feeding the animals, which thereby reproduce themselves thereby feeding us humans, which thereby reproduce to consume even more!
Consume consume. We're the top of the meticulously linked food chain and we couldn't do it without honeybees.
Have you hugged a honeybee today?
