Native bees

 A native bee forages on a wildflower growing in a wetland near a roadway in rural Douglas County near Roseburg, Ore., on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012. With the worldwide decline of European honeybee populations due to colony collapse disorder and other factors, researchers and farmers are beginning to stress the importance maintaining strong native bee populations.
