"And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day" (Genesis 1:31)
On the sixth day of creation, God made them, and us!
(Bumble Bees (Bombus) - 02) This bumble bee has climbed up deep inside a short-spur columbine flower to eat some of the nectar. Bumble bees usually nest in holes in the ground or in other cavities. The nests are first constructed by over-wintered queens in the spring. Upon emerging from hibernation, the bumble bee queen collects pollen and nectar from flowers and searches for a suitable new nest site. They rarely return to their old nest site. Bumble bee nests a much smaller that honey bee nests, and usually average less than 200 bees. Once the queen has found a site, she prepares wax pots to store food and wax cells into which eggs are laid.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation. Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion. It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
