Honey bees are unique in that most bees do not make colonies. Honey bees also have hair growing from their eyes.
Notes from Ikumi: This bee portrait is based on the beautiful photos from the USGS Bee Inventory and Motnitoring Lab (USGS BIML).
Why Scientific Illustration?
Scientific illustration plates are used in many parks, books, and field guides. It is important that illustrators understand the subject matter, so it’s very helpful to make small studies and sketches to study and understand the animal’s posture and behavior.
