Another Special Day for XKCD

If you don't read XKCD, you should.  Todays is beautiful and sad (that's a link to it).  (You should click on it, because then you get the cursor over thing, too.)  The title is "Bee Orchid."

According to wikipedia, though, there's still a bee that pollinates it in some areas of its range.  And it's hardy.  So maybe it isn't dying.

  1. See, to me this is also an allegory for why we do what we do in the Humanities: to remember, to recognize, and sometimes to recuperate what once was, and what will someday cease to be. It's all fragile, sad, and beautiful.
