The beauty of science is often hidden. The naked eye can not see beyond the practical and obvious. Filmmakers like Louie Schwartzberg try to capture this unseen beauty. His film The Hidden Beauty of Pollination can be seen on TED. What a beautiful way to start the weekend. http://www.ted.com/talks/louie_schwartzberg_the_hidden_beauty_of_pollination
