A new Washington DC record. 

Triepeolus cressonii, captured in the Kenilworth aquatic Gardens along the Anacostia River.  

A very urban landscape, but one that still retains quite a bit of original nature thanks to the work of the National Park Service maintains the property as well as adjacent areas along this quiet backwater. The specimen was collected by and photographed by Chelcey Nordstrom.

Check out our Flickr site for more details and at that location you can download the originals. Everything is public domain.

Faelan! I'm drawing a character who has honey bee-type wings, is there anything I specifically need to know about their structure?

Yes! Bees have two pairs of wings which is very important. If you only give them one pair they’re actually diptera like flies. 

The veins of the wings are also very important because they provide ventilation and blood flow and the bottom edge of the forewing and the top of the hindwing have hooks.

The wings also don’t move on their own as they aren’t muscle, the wings move by muscles inside the bee (as you can see below at B), as they contract the wings move down, and as they expand the wings move up.
