HD Timelapse: Sunflower & Honeybee

Finally. It took a couple days for my first (and so far only) Great Sunflower Project bloom to get the attention of the local bees, but today they finally came a calling and made up for lost time while I had my camera set up beside it.

You’ll have to forgive me for remaining so perpetually enchanted by what might be considered such a commonplace or even mundane thing. One reason is because I had a hand in bringing the flower to its present state and thus the bee to it, too. But the bigger picture is that I take much joy in the creation of nature, especially in a world so full of its destruction.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
