Theirs a bumblebee on my velvet queen sunflower ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’› #velvetqueensunflower #bumblebee #pollinators #sunflowerphotography #sunfloweraesthetic #fromseedtosunflower #beautifulsunflower
Welp, the end of an era has come and gone. After two very happy and busy years with the USGS and three extensions, my contract has reached its official conclusion. I still have some cool photos I'll post from my time working on our BANWR project though, including this series! Those tiny russet critters clustered around this male digger bee's throat are blister beetle larvae (family Meloidae). They are pretty common out in the desert and form these fantastic aggregations where they emit pheromones that mimic female bees. Once the male goes to mate with them, they all hop on board! From there they will 'infect' female bees when the males successfully mate and then make the female's burrows their own home. They consume the pollen stores and eventually the bee larvae too. A particularly nasty case of insect crabs if you think about it... #meloidae #blisterbeetle #usgs #independentcontracting #buenosairesnationalwildliferefuge #insecta #insectsofinstagram #parasites #crabs #kinda #hexapoda #bees #hymenoptera #pollinators #desertlife #circleoflife #endofanera #ontothenextone
Have you seen us? #forbfriday is brought to you by 2 very interesting plants this week! First up is slender dayflower, Commelina erecta, one of our very rare "true blue" wildflowers. As its name suggests, the flowers open for a few hours in the morning and then close up. It's pollinated by a few species of native, long-tongued bees and both mourning doves and bobwhite quail eat its seeds.  Second is snow-on-the-mountain, Euphorbia marginata. Snow-on-the-mountain gets its name from the wide white margins of the bracts, or smaller leaves, just below it's small, white flowers. Its sap can be quite irritating to mammals, so handle with care! But despite this, many small bees, flies, and wasps are attracted to its nectar and pollen. #kansaspfqf #quailforever #pheasantsforever
Monarch among birches, dogwoods, asters, and goldenrod. So much beauty on the Toronto Islands. ๐Ÿ’š #nativeplants #monarch #pollinators
Yesterday was a terrible lesson. One of our newly emerged Monarchs was stabbed and attacked by a wasp. It was horrifying. We saved the others waiting to fly, but she was bleeding and too heavily injured. Today, we made a new playpen. They stay here until they can soar on their own. . #monarch #monarchwatch2019 #pollinators #monarchbutterflies #artistactivist #savethepollinators #alisonpriceart #alisonprice #hungrycaterpillars #caterpillars #milkweed #madelinenewman #madvegan #jformation #oneearth #ourplanet  #100daysofmonarchs #100dayproject #endangered #naturehugs #forestbathing #kindness #monarchsofinstagram #climatechange #burnsvillemn
So, yeah, I had to come here. @lucas_ouellette, sorry for stealing your photo idea!  #pemberton #laughingcroworganics #sunflowers #bees #bumblebees #pollinators #instagram #instabanger #cliche
Clivia miniata 'Belgian Hybrid Orange' is responding to its summer vacation on the patio (and attracting pollinators) with four(!) bloom stalks. #pollinators #clivia #myplants #summerblooms #orange
Years ago some neighbors planted their excess #phlox in a skinny strip of dirt alongside our alleyway and its been a magnet for all sorts of insects, like this (slightly tattered) #easterntigerswallowtail #butterfly  #bloomingnow #pollinators #naturephotography
You can hardly see the #bee for all the pollen! I guess the #roseofsharon makes for a great snack  #bloomingtoday #inmygarden #pollinators #naturephotography

It is a great day to be a scientist!! Today and tomorrow is the Great Georgia Pollinator Census.  #science #citizenscience #pollinators
Welcome to my page! I'm Ren I've been working in gardening my whole life and now am starting school in september for horticulture! Echinacea; Also known as coneflower. This drought tolerant perrienal is perfect for BC's hot summers and great for attracting pollinators ๐Ÿ

Here is your Friday moment of Zen. A beautiful Eastern Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes) hard at work on this Lantana camara. As if the grounds and the flowers weren’t beautiful enough...gorgeous butterflies, birds and bees liven up the botanical party. #wavehill2019 #swallowtailbutterfly #pollinators  #lantanacamara #hortlife #iโค๏ธmyjob #thebronx
I’m learning to save seeds this year. It’s not the first year, we’ve collected flowers for years. This year we added spinach, pole beans, squash and carrots... and a Meyer lemon tree. Obviously some still yet to be harvested and then go on to seeding later in the fall. I am guilty and admit I thought they looked ugly all dried and shriveled...just hanging out in the garden, brown...then I thought, hey! I’m kinda shriveled. I’m not useless! I have wisdom of a seasoned elder. We have things to share!I’ve been feeling lately a bit like society doesn’t seem to be okay with the shriveled. But I look at these dried shriveled seeds and plants that have the wisdom to start a shoot out in the spring,  that’s a food!  I’m loving life itself ๐Ÿฅฐ
The bees can tell the difference, can you? ๐ŸŒป ๐Ÿ . . #papersunflowers #makingpaperflowers #pollinators #sunflowers #weddingflowers #loneygetswise
A guy once said to me ‘for someone into permaculture you really plant a lot of flowers.’ Yes, they’re part of just about any ecosystem on earth. Flowers feed the pollinators. On that point, these photos might seem out of focus. I wasn’t meaning to take photos of the hoverflies that arrived while I did so this morning. Three in one photo...Yes my pollinators are in their thousands now even at the tail end of winter. This garden is a no chemical haven for them. If you’ve been following me a while you’ll notice in my films and photos the hoverflies photo bomb often ๐Ÿ˜‚ So that’s why I plant a lot of flowers, mate. They are worth the space, delight me, and the pollinators and send veg & fruit production sky high. Why wouldn’t you plant a lot of flowers if you have the choice? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’•#mygarden #pollinators #feedthepollinators #hoverflies #bees #growwhatyoueat #organic #flowersofinstagram #productivelife #organicgardener #winter #anemoneflower #everlastingdaisies #gardeningaustralia #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #vintagetrishgarden #vintagetrish
Excited that the Girl Scout troop I worked with this week loved bees as much as I do and drew this in their spare time #sorryforpartying #sidewalkchalkart #lovewhatyoudo #savethebees #pollinators #gsme #honeybees #girlscoutsofmaine
If you are looking for a book to help you understand bees and what has been happening to them — particularly commercial beekeeping in North America — this is a terrific and engaging read. I know I’ve posted about “The Beekeepers Lament” before, but it’s a book I love to reread and recommend, so mentioning it again. There’s more than one canary in our collective coal mine, and the health of bees and insects are crucial indicator. No bees, no food.... ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿœ ๐Ÿ› ๐ŸŒฟ ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐Ÿ’  #bees #pollinators #insects #environment #colonycollapsedisorder #binen #bienen #abeilles #abejas #nobeesnofood #dcbee #dcbees #dcbeekeepers #urbanbeekeeping #womenbeekeepers #oneplanet #hannahnordhaus @hannahnordhaus

A lovely friend and neighbor came and helped me take cuttings of a native Lantana involucrata shrub that is particularly covered with flowers, and therefore pollinators. So far, so good. #nature #plants #propagation #nativeplants #nurtury #pollinators
Sexing our industrial hemp plants is vitally important in the growing process!  Each and every plant is carefully examined to determine it's sex by seeing what grows between their nodes.  Male plants are quickly erradicated! ๐Ÿคš  We don't want them hanging around.  Why do you ask?  Because it only takes one male plant to pollinate all the female plants, resulting in the females focusing all of their energy on growing seeds instead of flowers, which ultimately results in a smaller harvest.  Pollen can travel many miles from its source in search of female plants by the wind ๐ŸŒช or by traveling with the birds ๐Ÿฆand the bees ๐Ÿ. #cbd #cbdoil #hemp #industrialhemp #sensimilla #hempfarmers #wvhempfarmers #hempinainteasy #birdsandthebees  #pollinators  #growyourownmedicine #shadygrovebotanicals
