Honeybees dance around pussy willow flowers; a beetle and a ladybug crawl along its branches. A pond sits serenely in a copse of trees. In the distance, a steeple peers over the horizon. It seems a perfect spring day for the busy insects.
The title Frühlingsbild aus dem Insektenleben roughly translates to Spring Image from Insect Life. The image is part of Die Insekten, Tausendfüssler und Spinnen (Insects, Millipedes, and Spiders), an entomology book published in 1877 and co-written by Alfred Brehm and Ernst Ludwig Taschenberg, two German entomologists.
