The bees and the flowers
Last week I started with the chapter about bees, flowers and pollination in one of my classes at school. When we started discussing this, I realized I didn’t really have a picture of an insect with pollen attached to it. Today I went to Appelbergen again to see if I could find the first dragonflies and to take pictures of the Mining Bees. No dragonflies yet there, but the mining bees were very active. To my surprise they were three-coloured today, besides the grey and black there was also yellow. Apparently they had been eating nectar and had gotten some pollen as a bonus. This gave me the opportunity to make some nice pictures to show my 1st class pupils next week.
