Pollination: it’s vital to life on Earth, but largely unseen by the human eye. Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg captures the intricate world of pollen and pollinators with gorgeous high-speed images in his film “Wings of Life,” inspired by the vanishing of one of nature’s primary pollinators, the honeybee.

Louie Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer who captures truly stunning images that celebrate life — revealing connections, universal rhythms, patterns and beauty. In the seven minute video clip that we are linking to, Schwartzberg shows us the intricate world of pollen and pollinators with gorgeous high-speed images from his film, Wings of Life, inspired by the vanishing of one of nature’s primary pollinators, the honeybee.

Please take the time to watch this seven-minute video – I cannot imagine that you would in any way be disappointed with what you will see. The footage is quite remarkable and reminds us that if anything deserves to be called a miracle, it’s every moment of the dance that we call nature. She is quite miraculous. Enjoy the video and enjoy the weekend.
