I was listening to a podcast recently (possibly BBC Inside Science??) which said that they thought that when a bee visits a flower it changes the electrical charge in the flower. The next bee can sense the change and knows that the flower has already been visited. Which is pretty amazing. 🙂
The first drawing I have attempted since school (and I am now retired). I chose not to do the surrounding branches which I now think would have framed the picture better. I liked drawing from the picture as I could zoom in a bit. The claws were fascinating and I wouldn’t have noticed them without studying the photo. I struggled to replicate the beak and to show the tilt of the head.
