The Buzzing of Bees, the Buzzing of Drones


After reading an article about the adverse effect of declining bee populations, I decided to take action. A tiny impact on a growing problem.  I will plant more native perennials that will attract bees and butterflies, and of course will not use any pesticides in my garden.

As I research perennials that will meet those requirements, my husband is flying his Phantom 4 drone over the very gardens that will be our connection to nature.  If you’ve never heard a drone fly, let me describe it as the sound of an angry hornet. On steroids.

Rather than be annoyed at this intrusion into my nature journey, I’m intrigued.  The technology is amazing!  It stabilizes itself, avoids objects, and can be programmed to follow the user for some awesome film footage. Of course, you need to do something awesome at the time.

My husband flies his drone responsibly, in safe areas and at safe heights.  He’s a videographer and can create some fantastic footage from the drone’s camera.  The technology enables him to have a bird’s eye view of our intriguing earth, so how could that be a bad thing?

  1. Is there more to your article after “how can that be a bad thing?” Or are you just leaving us with a rhetorical question?
