Schwartzberg: The Hidden Beauty of Pollination

Syrphid's Feast


 

In this brief TED presentation, Louie Schwartzberg shares with us clips of his 35-year collection of time-lapse footage. The footage is borrowed from his film “Wings of Life”, with the focus concentrated on pollination. The video captures in exquisite detail nature’s four primary pollinators: bees,¬†butterflies, hummingbirds and bats. Of particular motivation for his film is the worrying decline of the honeybee, nature’s most assiduous pollinator.
