Photos of the Week (10/16/22)

The big buzz by Karine Aigner, the winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022. Aigner captured the flurry of activity as a buzzing ball of cactus bees spun over the hot sand in south Texas, US. After a few minutes, the pair at its center – a male clinging to the only female in the scrum – flew away to mate. The world’s bees are under threat from habitat loss, pesticides and climate change. With 70% of bee species nesting underground, it is increasingly important that areas of natural soil are left undisturbed. Photograph: Karine Aigner/Wildlife Photographer of the Year
