La abeja en particular puede considerarse una auténtica bestia de carga, no solo como polinizador capaz de visitar alrededor de 7 000 flores al día, sino también como proveedora de miel -codiciada desde hace milenios como alimento y medicina-, y por ofrecer oportunidades de sustento que requieren poco capital o propiedad de la tierra. Las abejas realizan una contribución adicional a la seguridad alimentaria, ya que no solo fomentan la vida vegetal, sino que actúan como centinelas frente a las amenazas ambientales emergentes, informando de la salud de los ecosistemas locales. ¡Salvemos a las abejas! // #WorldBeeDay The bee in particular can be considered a true pack beast, not only as a pollinator capable of visiting around 7 000 flowers a day, but also as a provider of honey -coveted for millennia as food and medicine-, and for providing livelihood opportunities that require little capital or property of the land. Bees make an additional contribution to food security, as they not only promote plant life, but act as sentinels in response to emerging environmental threats, reporting on the health of local ecosystems.

17 tags and 2 profiles in descriptionChichen Itzá was a large pre-Columbian Maya city in Yucatán State, Mexico and was a major focal point in the Northern Maya Lowlands from the Late Classic Period (c. CE600–900) through the Terminal Classic (c. CE800–900) to the Postclassic period (c. CE900–1200). Architecturally, the site exhibits a multitude of styles, reminiscent of central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most recent interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion. Here photographed, Las Monjas ("The Nuns" or "The Nunnery"), a complex of Terminal Classic structures built in the Puuc architectural style. The Spanish named this complex Las Monjas but it was actually a governmental building. On the left here is a small structure known as the La Iglesia, ("The Church"), decorated with elaborate iconography. #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #mexico #mayaworld #mayanworld #yucatan #history #heritage #worldheritage #worldheritagesite #archaeology #mayaruins #mayanruins #igtravel #visualarchitects #lighting #dusk image: @simonnorfolkstudio words: @tribaleye

It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now Guatemala. The ruins lie among the tropical rainforests that formed the hearth of lowland Maya civilisation. Tik'al reached its peak during the Classic Period (CE 200 to CE 900). During this time, the city dominated the Maya region militarily, economically and politically. A dynastic line has been established for the city, including at least 33 rulers spanning 800 years. Studies of hieroglyphic inscriptions found at the site indicate that the city was then known as Yax Mutal or Yax Mutul. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979. Here photographed the 47m (154ft) high Temple 1 (also known as the Temple of Ah Cacao or Temple of the Great Jaguar) seen from Temple 2. The structure is a funerary pyramid dedicated to Jasaw Chan K'awil, who was entombed in the structure in AD 734. To the left are some of the stelae (carved stone shafts, often sculpted with figures and hieroglyphs) that front the Northern Acropolis.

10 tags and 0 profile in descriptionTulum was one of the most significant Mayan cities of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, being an essential stopover for the commercial routes of the Mayans, in their exploitation of the maritime riches of the coasts of the present Quintana Roo. At its best, Tulum was established as the link between maritime and terrestrial commercial dynamics in the Mayan world. In fact, objects from various regions of the Yucatan Peninsula and Central America have been found in Tulum, which reflects the importance that this Mayan city had for the commerce of Ancient Mexico. Tulum fue una de las urbes mayas más significativas de los siglos XIII y XIV, por ser una escala imprescindible para las rutas comerciales de los mayas, en su explotación de las riquezas marítimas de las costas del actual Quintana Roo. En su mejor momento, Tulum se perfiló como el nexo entre las dinámicas comerciales marítimas y terrestres en el mundo maya. De hecho, en Tulum han sido hallados objetos procedentes de varias regiones de la Península de Yucatán y Centroamérica, lo cual pondera la trascendencia que tuvo, esta ciudad maya, para el comercio del México Antiguo.#ecoculture #experiences #ecoculturexperiences #excursions #ecotourism #ecotours #privedtours #mayanworld #yucatan #mexico

CE600–900) through the Terminal Classic (c. CE800–900) to the Postclassic period (c. CE900–1200). Architecturally, the site exhibits a multitude of styles, reminiscent of central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most recent interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion. Here photographed, Las Monjas ("The Nuns" or "The Nunnery"), a complex of Terminal Classic structures built in the Puuc architectural style.
