Insects

These are photos that The Bees’ Needs Citizen Scientists have been submitting this summer. I will be working on fixing the formatting, but at least you can scroll down and see who some of the little buggers are.  Please send photos for blocks, plugs and insects if you are lucky enough to see them working.
