Day 22: Al fresco dining with home-grown spinach and home - made wild garlic (non dairy) ‘butter’ on my sweet potato, with freshly blended houmous (with turmeric- interesting!), Milo made refríed beans and a sprinkling of flax, noosh and chia for extra b12 and essential amino acids. Lots of nutrition to get me through feeling less than 100%. Watching the bees while eating lunch. Pollinators and plant based- what could be better? . . #30dayswild #pollinators #plantbased #yummyinmytummy #homemade #foraging #eatoutdoors
I will show my creations this weekend in Oslo at the Karl Johan gate. Here a new creation as a homage to the bees who are the one of the most important factor in our food chain, as pollinators for our veggies, fruits and even for the food which feed wild animals and livestock. made with coffee+ink #homage #bees #coffeeart
Dear honeybees, I read in the news recently that you can understand basic enough maths to know what zero means. You’re pretty darn clever, and you work so hard making us honey and pollinating all of our plants. We aren’t looking after you because we use nasty pesticides and destroy your habitat and confuse you with our phone signals. Hopefully we will all realise we need to protect you before it’s too late. 🐝
This week you've been hearing the #buzz about #pollinators during #NationalPollinatorWeek . Will you take steps to protect the #pollinators living in your yard & help them thrive? 90% of all flowering plants rely on pollinators to reproduce - that's staggering! #SaveOurPollinators
We planted butterfly weed that we purchased from the Norton, VA Elementary and Middle School Greenhouse Project in honor of #pollinatorweek . Thanks to Carol Ingram Moore for the photo of the mature plant. #pollinators #butterflyweed #nativeplants #coveridgecenter #naturaltunnelstatepark #vastateparks
One effective way to increase local pollinator numbers is to cultivate a landscape that includes a diverse range of local plants that will provide pollen and nectar throughout the year. We’ve committed to working with farmers in our @cascadianfarm supply chain across the country to install native pollinator habitat on those farms. This habitat will be unique to each farm and its needs. This commitment has expanded beyond our supply chain to support farmers across the country who want to conserve pollinators by a partnership between Xerces and NRCS. . . . #pollinatorweek #pollinators #xercessociety #cascadianfarm #organicfarm #pollinatorhabitat

This #coralhoneysuckle is all along a fence in my parents’ neighborhood, and I love seeing it when I pass by. Yesterday, I finally stopped (in the rain!) to take a few photos. I love the bright, contrasting colors! #Hummingbirds love the trumpet-shaped flowers, and the bright colors attract #pollinators of all types. Which reminds me...Happy #NationalPollinatorWeek ! #lonicerasempervirens #honeysuckle #nativeplants #florida #lovefl #wildflowers #flowers #trumpethoneysuckle #itsabeautifuldayintheneighborhood #imsoexcitediwetmyplants #nofilter

At Lee Arts Center’s opening of the Flights of Fancy show was a fascinating talk about pollinators by an Arlington County Parks & Rec staff member. Here’s one he didn’t mention, found at the designboom online mag. The osmia avosetta bee makes these beautiful nests from flower petals. #osmiaavosetta #pollinators #flightsoffancy #leeartscenter #bee #beenest #flowerpetalnests #flowerpetals #designboom
So yeah...it’s this time of the year when my garden turns into a jungle 😜 Let’s just call this ”bee haven”, not a mess, okay? It’s humid now, finally! Inside the calatheas are thriving. #mygardentoday #sustainablegardening #greenhouse #gardening #wildgarden #pollinators
By providing an abundance of native flower plants in the farm landscape, we’re able to provide habitat for tomato pollinators, like mud bees and bumblebees. Research shows that habitats like these are the best approach to reversing the declining bee population in North America. . . . #pollinatorweek #pollinators #xercessociety #muirglen #organicfarm #pollinatorhabitat #hedgerow #floweringplant #bumblebee

A Syrphid fly (Sphaerophoria sulphuripes) foraging on Showy Fleabane. Flies are important pollinators too, some better than others and especially for certain plants where they may play a main role in pollination.
It's National Pollinator Week! We grow lots of flowers around our farm and are surrounded by wildflowers in the adjoining fields...plenty of food and habitat to keep those pollinators happy 🌸 And of course, no spraying whatsoever. #pollinators #nopesticides #organicfarming #savethebees
Robber flies don't get to have all the bee-mimicking fun- this is Mallota posticata, a bumblebee mimicking Syrphid or hover fly. The larvae of these hover flies are often called "rat-tailed maggots" because they have a long breathing tube on their rear end, which they use as a snorkel as they feed on organic matter while submerged in water. This species specifically lay their eggs in tree holes filled with standing water and detritus. Adults are pollen and nectar feeding, and really great pollinators. An all around lovely fly. 🐝 . . . #syrphidae #flies #diptera #hoverfly #entomology #taxonomy #insects #bugsnotdrugs #bugs #insectphotography #macro #nature #naturephotography #cellphonephotography #pixel2 #mimicry #pollinators

Pollinators and hummingbirds love Vernonia noveboracensis. This sun-loving perennial typically grows between 3 and 7 feet tall. I typically plant these giants en masse in drifts and sweeps. . . . . #thomaslynchdesign #vernonianoveboracensis #thomaslynch #hummingbird #plants #awardwinningdesigner #gardendesign #landscapedesign #design #designer #landscape #garden #maine #landscapedesigner #gardendesigner #maine #vernonia #tallperennial #perennial #purpleflower #butterfly #pollinators #nativeplants
It’s pollinator week. Bees are such an important part of the eco system. We need them to pollinate not only flowers but the food we eat, the coffee we drink...hear that no bees no coffee. I for one can’t live with out that beautiful little bean. But I digress, there is the matter of honey, most of us us it in our tea and on our toast, but did you know that medicinally honey is better for treating wounds then say neosporin? That honey soothes a soar throat and can help a cough. honey is a natural antiseptic and has also been shown to ease allergies if you buy local honey. So please don’t spray weed killers and please do plant things that help the very busy bee! #pollinators #pollinatorfriendly #pollinatorweek #savethebees #busybee #honeybee #natureatitsbest #macrophotography #macro_mood #macroclique #mygarden #macro_brilliance #gf_macro #gf_wildlife #raw_macro #raw_depthoffield #raw_allnature
Cool little hummingbird clearwing moth, it's coloring makes it look like a bumble bee! #bugz #moths #garden #insect #pollinators
Did you know that it is National Pollinator Week? Insects, hummingbirds and bats are responsible for pollinating around 75% of our crops. So take a moment to appreciate these wonderful little creatures. The world would be a much more difficult place without them.

Too cute to handle!! So many tiny bees in our plant area just now and they seem to be loving these dahlias! #baby #bees #tiny #cute #babybee
"Green Sweat Bee on Campanula" and "Green Sweat Bee in Ground Nest" oil, 6x6 each #171summermosaic Sweat Bees are only 5 to 10 mm long. These tiny bees pollinate our smaller native plants. Watch out for their gound nests in your garden or yard. You can help these tiny pollinators survive by setting aside a patch of sandy soil for their nests. #pollinators #greensweatbee #campanula #pollinatorweek #nativepollinators

Flowers of Tswalu - The genus Vachellia (previously known as Acacia) is widespread in Africa and all possess sharp thorns. This beautiful pink flowered form (they are usually a cream colour) is V. mellifera (black-thorn) and is one of the prominent tree species on Tswalu, often forming impenetrable thickets. The species name “mellifera” meaning honey-bearing, refers to the importance of the flowers to bees who take advantage of their prolific flowering during early spring. . . . #TswaluFoundation #Tswalu #TswaluKalahari #Dedebenresearchcentre #NorthernCape #SouthAfrica #Kalahari #Natgeolodges #research #conservation #conservationresearch #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #nature #ecology #biodiversity #geophytes #pollinators #vachellia
"According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyways. Because bees don't care what humans think is impossible." - Bee Movie . . . #drawing #art #instaart #fineliner #finelinerart #artist #natureart #draw #nature #sketch #blackandwhite #blackart #artwork #dotwork #ink #inkart #fineart #dailydrawing #bee #pollinators #honey #beehive #dotworknow #blackworknow #homedeco #decoration #wallart #inspiration #home #interiors
The Varroa mite can only reproduce in a honey bee colony. It attaches to the body of the bee and weakens the bee by sucking fat bodies, In this process, viruses such as deformed wing virus spread to bees. A significant mite infestation will lead to the death of an entire honey bee colony.#savethebees #pengamhives #apiary #honey #honeybee #bee #beehive #education #pollinators #beekeeping #beekeeper #gofundme #pleasehelp #charity #beegurus #bees #thankyou #wales #valleylife #beelife #beekeeping #beekeeper #beekeepinguk #wales #greenfingers #garden #gardening #gardeningtips #gardeningideas #allotmentlife #allotment #plantsofinstagram
Je leest en hoort het in steeds meer media: allerlei insecten verdwijnen in rap tempo uit het Nederlandse ecosysteem. Hoog tijd dat daar wat aan gedaan wordt, zowel door bedrijven en overheden als door onszelf. Jij kan ook helpen door van jouw tuin een insectenoase te maken waar bijen, vlinders, lieveheersbeestjes en andere diertjes zich heel fijn voelen. @sprinklr.co en @asnbank helpen je daarbij een handje met hun Ecotuintje. In deze nieuwe plantenset van Sprinklr vind je drie prachtige planten die een feest zijn voor het lokale ecosysteem. De Artemisia Vulgaris, oftewel de Bijvoet, zit vol met luizen die alleen op deze plant willen zitten. Deze luizen trekken diverse insecten aan en zo ontstaan alleen al door deze plant een heel ecosysteem in jouw achtertuin. De prachtige Astilbe en de Slangenkop uit de set zorgen voor de nodige nectar voor de bijen. De plantenset is nu bij Sprinklr te bestellen en als je de code AWKWARDDUCKLING gebruikt bij jouw bestelling, ontvang je ook nog eens een extra plant bij jouw bestelling! Wij gaan onze plantjes dit weekend een fijn plekje geven in de tuin en hopen dan nog meer bijtjes, lieveheersbeestjes en andere insecten blij te maken. #awkwardduckling #tuinieren #gardening #gard #gardens #gardener #gardenlife #gardensofinstagram #instagarden #instagardeners #sprinklr #asnbank #ecotuintje #savethebees #bee #pollinators #bees #beautifulflowers #gardeninspiration #pollen #gardeners #insects #biologisch #lieveheersbeestjes #ladybugs #growsomethinggreen #organicgardening #organic #insectagram #spon

The sun is back, yay! 😎 Here are some lovely pictures from Cae’n-y-Coed car park in Gwydir Forest Park. It's full of flowers, buzzing and fluttering with bees, butterflies & insects 🐝🐛🦋🐌🐞🐜🦗🕷️ ___ Our North West Recreation Team have been looking at how they manage the grassy areas around our car parks in #Gwydir #Forest Park. ___ After seeking specialist advice, they decided to start managing some of these areas as #wildflower meadows. The meadow flowers provide an excellent #habitat for pollinators, which are not only lovely to see but are also essential to our existence, by pollinating our fruit trees and crops 🌻 ___ #NorthWales #Meadow #Flowers #Insects #Bees #Pollinators #PollinatorLove #PollinatorParadise #PollinatorsRule

Bee Block ready 🐝 Over at my folks we’ve set up the bee block from @greenandblueuk I bought my Dad for Father’s Day. With the hatchlings hitting a peak at 12 females emerging two days ago, not many have returned...yet. Because this is a new bee brick and the same with the bee hotels over at my parents, I’ve checked the empty cocoons for any parasites and then added a few back into the areas to hopefully show them it’s a great place to stay. One female has returned already back near her cocoon. I’ve left a flower landmark nearby and I’ll be making some buzz-bags as soon as the others hatch too 🐝 #bee #bees #solitarybee #solitarybees #solitarybeeweek #solitarybeegardens #greenandblue #beebrick #givenatureahome #pollinators #30dayswild #springwatch #naturelovers #🐝
De-webbing & Buzz-bagging 🐝 Every morning and evening I de-web the bee hotels. Love my spiders but I’m still hoping this passive-aggressive action will mean they move to a different location away from the bees. I also de-web flight paths amongst flowers that I know and the spiders know, the bees use. I’ve also added the buzz-bags into some of the bee hotels early this and a curious male leaf cutter bee was casually watching what I was up to. He wasn’t at all concerned with me close proximity to him so maybe he’s used to me from these hotel checks which would be nice. The buzz-bags are a great little land mark for a bee using the hotels too. I’m rubbish at remembering street names but landmarks work for me. It’s the same with bees. Seeing a visual familiarity can help them back to a hotel as they can get lost like the best of us. I’ve checked no bees were in the bamboo canes or locations with a torch first before adding the buzz-bags as I don’t want to trap any in so they’re stuck. I’m going to be interested if this works 🤗 #bees #bee #solitarybee #solitarybeekeeping #solitarybeekeeper #solitarybeeweek #buzzbags #leafcutter #leafcutterbee #beehotel #30dayswild #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #savethebees #springwatch #hellolittleone #buzz #funwithpheromones #entomology #apiary #apiarist
The Zebra Longwing is the state butterfly of Florida. It’s a unique species due to the fact that it lives 6 months longer than most other butterflies. The reason for this stems from the fact that Zebra Longwings use special enzymes on their proboscis (elongated mouthpart) that break down pollen into helpful amino acids. 📷: Terry Baldwin #NationalPollinatorWeek
Celebrate #PollinatorWeek with plants that attract butterflies. Nootka rose is a host plant for numerous butterflies. See our latest blog post: https://inharmony.com/pollinator-week-plants-that-attract-butterflies/ Dan Hershman photo
