“So when people talk about saving bees, my interpretation of that is we need to save our relationship to bees, and in order to design new solutions, we have to understand the basic biology of bees and understand the effects of stressors that we sometimes cannot see. In other words, we have to understand bees up close.” – Anand Varma
When Anand Varma takes a photograph of a parasitic wasp consuming a caterpillar from the inside, he doesn’t want to you to be disgusted. He wants you to be astonished. After all, he’s devoted years of his life to perfecting his techniques to create dramatic, bizarre—and beautiful—images of the miniature world around us. Through these truly unique images, he reveals the secret life cycle of the honeybee, captures the lightning-fast behaviours of hummingbirds, and offers a rare glimpse at our world's small wonders.
Part of the National Geographic Live series.

The Jack Singer Concert Hall in Arts Commons is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America.
As the home of Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, BD&P World Music, and TD Jazz, audiences are treated to some of the world's finest musical events. Special features incorporated into the hall design allow rentals to outside promoters and the community, providing a spectrum of entertainment year-round.
