This is a lo-res photograph of a bee pollinating a raspberry flower.
My great variety of flowers makes pollinators very happy, which is really the point of the photograph, I suppose.
Although what struck me while taking the photo is that I'm going to get a ton of raspberries this year, assuming the Japanese beetles don't devour them all; and every single one of those hundreds and hundreds of berries was pollinated by a bee, a wasp, or a butterfly (no hummingbirds yet). The beautiful complexity and emergent order of this little system I've created continues to amaze me. How would I or anyone have written a program to do that?
