Start of a new series in the KNOW YOUR WILD BEES CAMPAIGN.
Now we move into the magic of field ID.
Go outside, use butterfly binoculars … you can do it. Eastern North American Genera are our target, but in most cases the same characters will work anywhere. I am serious about this…the only reason we have bird conservation is because of bird watchers…so you need to become a bee watcher…and you will save the world.
I have never posted something on this blog that wasn’t bee related, but I need your help.
I am helping with a fundraiser at my school to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. My goal is to raise $100 and I need your help.
I’ve decided to hold a raffle to help raise money. By donating any amount to my page (the more the better since everything is donated), your name will be entered into a raffle and you have the chance to win a set of my bee pins and profile picture sticker (which are both available on my Etsy).
All the money for this month has been donated. I’m super busy this month so I will not be able to research and find another bee saving organization to donate to next month, so all the money for next month will also go this organization. You can donate here
Bees are the best, cutest, nicest, sweetest things to paint, my absolute favorites!!<3 <3 <3 I painted my first bee a little over 2 years ago, I’ve mailed one of my originals all the way to Kuwait for an urban beekeeper and that’s the coolest thing I’ve done!! – @bed-ballerina
P.s.I have a bunch of bee stickers in my shop! 🙂 Etsy
