Even Busy Bees stop & smell Roses

‘Remain as busy as a bee so that you find no time in discussing the flaw of others. Let your action speak the truth” Swapnam

Are you killing yourself by being busy unnecessarily?

There is nothing wrong with being busy.

But there is something wrong if you are busy to fulfill your greed.

Even the busy bee stops, takes time to smell the flower and picks up the best honey.

“Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life”  Unknown

Spinning like a top

I have been taking photographs of honey bees, hoverflies etc. for quite some time.

One thing I find difficult was photographing the bee when it’s in ‘flight mode’.

I always wished to have a good shot of both the ‘wings’ Viewed from above at the same time with the wings blurred nicely giving a fast-moving ‘spin top’  appearance.

Fortunately, I was successful.

Shutter speed-1/800 sec,f/4.5, Focal length 100 mm, ISO 100

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Size comparison of objects

Comparison of sizes reminded me how insignificant we are in the universe, yet we are full of ‘ego’ and try to dominate everyone!

Do we matter in the Universe?

My dear friend, we are just a blip (less than a trillionth of a second) in the Cosmos.

Yes. We are insignificant in the grand scheme of the Universe.

“The human race is just a chemical scum on a moderate-sized planet, orbiting around a very average star in the outer suburb of one among a hundred billion galaxies. We are so insignificant that I can’t believe the whole universe exists for our benefit. That would be like saying that you would disappear if I closed my eyes.”  Stephen Hawking 

Realize how insignificant we are! Check this video

Can’t we be humble?

“Being humble means recognizing that we are not on Earth to see how important we can become, but to see how much difference we can make in the lives of others” Gordon B Hinckley

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
