The due diligence of bees

I sat for a while yesterday just watching the bees work the flowers. Such diligence!  Efficiently, they move from flower to flower, gathering food while unwittingly completing nature’s work of pollination too.  I wish I were that productive when I ate.  The more flowers, the more bees needed. You are that productive when you eat.  I mean, the more produce you eat, the more we grow, and the more we grow, the more help we need to get all that work done.  I can see them down there now—flitting from task to task with the due diligence of bees, an integral cog in the transmission of food from farm to fork.
