Busy Bumbling Bee

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Niamh Carolan

Wild flora along the coastline is a natural go-to for the best in nectar. The insect world is a busy place we are infrequently aware of. This moment, captured off the South-West coast of Ireland, offered an intimate encounter with the natural world that is so often overlooked. As our lives get busier, faster and more hectic, we need to return to simplicity and appreciate the beautiful world around us.

Location: Valentia Island, off South-west coast of Ireland
