Test your bee knowledge with @nationalwildlife's quiz: #linkinbio — then comment below with your score! 🐝⠀ ・・・⠀ #Repost @nationalwildlife with @get_repost⠀ ・・・⠀ Bees are an incredibly important group of wildlife. The service they provide by pollinating both our agricultural crops as well as wild plants is critical for our food supply and for maintaining healthy ecosystems upon which all species, including us, rely.⠀ But, how much do you actually know about these industrious insects? Take our Beesponsible quiz (link in bio ⬆️) and find out!⠀ Here’s a hint for one of the questions: Long-horned bees + squash bees do not live communally 🐝⠀ For more information on @Beesponsible, how you can help bees, and how to participate in a fun social media campaign to support the National Wildlife Federation’s work including the Garden for Wildlife program, visit Beesponsible.com and follow @Beesponsible on social media.⠀ #bees #beesponsible #gardens #garden4wildlife #insects #pollinators #quiz #wildlife #squashbees #honeybees #bumblebees #masonbees #longhornedbees #sweatbees #nests #facts #wildlifefacts #spring #nature #TuesdayThoughts

"Bees in the Trap" watercolor and acrylic on paper, 12x16. Inspired by the very real bee orchid, ophrys apifera, that uses scent to mimic a female bee, attracting male long-horned bees to pseudocopulate with it in order to transfer pollen. This is also called "Pouyannian" mimicry in honor of M. Pouyanne who first described this action in this very genus of orchid. Alternately, Wikipedia also states that this orchid in particular is the "only species of the genus which preferentially practices self-pollination (mostly in the northern areas of distribution)" which means that this beauty DON'T NEED NO MAN. #ophrysapifera #beebearing #beeorchid #longhornedbees #mimcryinplants #independentorchid #pouyannianmimicry #beesinthetrap

Here’s another solitary bee, the Furry Leaf-cutter Bee - Megachile perihirta. Leaf-cutters transport pollen in scopae on the undersides of their abdomen rather than on their hind legs as many other bees do. This bee is foraging on what we generally call Bull Thistle, Cirsium vulgare, also Scots Thistle, Common Thistle, and other names. Is that a long horned-bee heading at her? #siskiyoucounty #klamathrange #megachile #megachileperihirta #leafcutterbee #longhornedbees #nativebees

A male Florida Long Horned bee poses for its portrait (and sizes me up). Wild bees are largely responsible for pollinating crops such as blueberries, squash, tomatoes, eggplant, broccoli, etc. So this 4th of July, you can thank a native bee for the ketchup you're squirting all over your hot dog (and probably your shirt). Native bees also have a fondness for wild flowers and grasses. You can attract them to your yard by planting a wide variety of flora and by allowing native wild flowers (aka "weeds") a place in your yard. Wild flowers give bees food to forage year round here in the dirty South, where no one gets time off to hibernate in the Winter. #bee #nativebees #longhornedbees #pollinators #insects_of_our_world #insect_perfection #arthropods_anonymous #arthropod_perfection #kings_insects #pollen #soft #pocket_macro #bns_insects #bestnatureshot #insectagram #iphone6s #olloclipmacro #mobilephotography #tinyworld #mat_macro #birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #bokeh #bokehkillers #bokeh_kings #mobilephotography #filthyflora #moody_nature at Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation

Super happy to see a few long-horned bees sipping on the opening sunflower bloom. Some of these blooms were from the Lemon Queen sunflower seed mix from @fruition_seeds and a few others were from a @WholeFoods sunflower mix thanks to @ndbeeman ! #longhornedbees #Eucerini #scopa #fuzzyleggedbee #sunflowers #beebloom2015 #beebloom2015cjn at apoidea apiary

There are about 10 #LongHornedBees on my #sunflower this morning, but only three are active on the flowers face, one acting as guard as two at a time are collecting pollen. The others appear to be sleeping on the shaded side of the #flower head. They don't seem to be as tolerant of my presence today, and take flight easily if I move too fast. They are not aggressive. #insects #gardening #365happiness #garden #beauty #bees

Had to save one of my little #LongHornedBees from drowning in the #rainwater bucket today. He seemed grateful just to have something to cling to. I tucked him into my #mint plant, out of the rain. #practicekindness #savethebees #bees #rainstorms #stormydays #insects #gardening #dirtyhands #nature #gardening
