Seeks Bee Nerd

Lauren Ogston

The Bee Trading Card Series 1 (Resonating Bodies) is a collection of twenty-four cards that feature three anthophila species, in the superfamily Apoidea, found within a two-hour radius of Toronto. The cards follow the traditional image-obverse, print-reverse format and feature macro photography of bee anatomy and facts on physiology, biodiversity, evolution and classification.

They also read like personal ads—“solitary, vegetarian, powerful jaws, organizes pollinating activities, doesn’t raise own young,” anyone? We have to wonder whether dating would be greatly improved, or at least become more efficient, if a new couple exchanged a set of such cards before sitting down for dinner.

At least you would know whether your prospective partner was likely to run off after the kids were born.

I always longed to be the falling woman—impelled by unruly passion, driven by beauty and desire, turned into stone, drowned in flowers.
