The hidden beauty of pollination Louie Schwartzberg on

Pollination: it’s vital to life on Earth, but largely unseen by the human eye. Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg shows us the intricate world of pollen and pollinators with gorgeous high-speed images from his film “Wings of Life,” inspired by the vanishing of one of nature’s primary pollinators, the honeybee. (Recorded at TED2011, March 2011, in Long Beach, CA. Duration: 7:40)
