Subject: [pbs] Photos of native bees and honeybees on native and nonnative 
plants in Oregon

Hello,

The following is a link to a variety of photos of Oregon native bees and 
honeybees on Oregon native and nonnative plants (some bulbs, too), with some 
cynical commentary on the subject.

Surely I'll be preaching to the choir when I say that something must be done 
to help the pollinators. I feel it is necessary to reduce the problem to an 
economic issue, hence my reference to a Xerces Society study (Losey et al. 
2006) estimating $57 billion in ecological services provided by insects 
annually (including pest reduction by predatory/parasitoid insects), since 
it is clear that economy is more important than environment in the minds of 
many. Conservation needs to become a profitable endeavor on a scale much 
larger than is currently possible.
