Global 15% pollen protein patties⠀
global patties have been the canadian beekeeping industry standard for protein supplements for years. used extensively in western canada by some of canada's largest beekeepers. use what the professional beekeeper uses. use global patties. these premium protein patties contain pollen are made with 15% real bee pollen. the bee pollen content in these patties has been scientifically proven to make the patties much more readily accepted by bees.

? pollinator appreciation post:
did you know one bee has to fly about 90,000 miles – three times around the globe – to make one pound of honey?
2). the average bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.
3). a honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip.
4). a honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour.
5). the bee’s brain is oval in shape and about the size of a sesame seed, yet it has a remarkable capacity to learn and remember things. for example, it is able to make complex calculations on distance travelled and foraging efficiency! ✨

Throwback thursday to these adorable little bees found sleeping in a flower in the early morning!

male solitary bees generally spend their nights tucked away in flowers that close their petals slightly over night to help them stay warm. many times you can see them bunking up together 🐝🐝🌼

What do you love to do more than absolutely anything in the whole wide world? for me, it’s this. i have been a flower farmer since 2016, and i wholeheartedly find purpose in growing flowers and salad. i truly love entomology as well and preserving the biodiversity in north texas. this week i got to share my knowledge of the bees in our area with a garden club in our area. it makes my heart so happy to know that i am not alone and that other people in the area will be planting flowers to support pollinators!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ want to learn more to grow your own? i would love to help!

It’s windy. and cold. and raining most of the time. it’s been nearly impossible to get things done outside at the farm given the amount of water that’s fallen over the past couple of weeks. but it’s almost spring and these little pops of sunshine are a happy reminder of that. cheers to the sunshine days ahead. warm days. and the rainy days too.

What you didn't see was me bent over waiting for a bee to land on a clover like a deranged person.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
when in the daylight, it's good to lower that exposure time/shutter speed as much as reasonable because it makes things not as bright and it captures fast moving things better aka a bee. the higher aperture also makes sure the entire bee is in focus.⁣⁣

needless fact of the day: the blurry background is called 'bokeh' (pronounced like a bouquet of flowers).⁣⁣

The normal top speed of a worker would be about 15-20 mph (21-28 km/h), when flying to a food source, and about 12 mph (17 km/h), when returning laden down with nectar, pollen, propolis or water.🐝💛🏵️

Throwback to last semester where we taught students about the third permaculture principle: produce no waste!⠀

💡students explored empathy in regards to how the garden makes them feel and why.⠀

🌷through finding pictures in magazines students were able to find examples of flowers, vegetables, and even emotions. ⠀

🗑️at the end of class we showed respect to their school and garden by picking up trash.⠀

♻️ we challenge you to reuse water bottles at home and to not litter!⠀

big thanks to @thepollinatonproject for granting us funds which allows us to continue garden club education @ocps.ace

comment 1 star 258 22 hours ago

Every 3rd mouthful of food is produced by bees pollinating crops. flowering plants rely on bees for pollination so that they can produce fruit and seeds. without bees pollinating these plants, there would not be very many fruits or vegetables to eat.

comment 4 star 37 22 hours ago

Did you know:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐝 bumblebees are larger than honey bees and generate more heat. this allows them to work during cooler weather.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐝 bumblebees don't die when they sting. this is trait found in honey bees.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐝 bees are covered in an oil that makes them waterproof.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐝 queens shiver to warm up and keep eggs toasty.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
bumblebees are large, fuzzy insects with short, stubby wings. they are larger than honeybees, but they don't produce as much honey. however, they are very important pollinators. without them, food wouldn't grow.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
two-thirds of the world's crop species depend on animals to transfer pollen between male and female flower parts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
there is a lot of discussion as to why the overall be population is declining. some scientists think that there may be a sickness killing off the bees. others think pollution, global warming or lack of native flowers may be to blame.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This viceroy on a leafy perch stopped me in my tracks while treading the grass path at the end of a hike. i had to leverage an awkward lunging stance to capture the picturesque moment from the perfect angle, and hoped no one walked past scaring off the butterfly. the species is distasteful to predators but also mimics the larger monarch which can be poisonous to some. this individual was most likely newly emerged as it rested its wings and let me get close enough to touch the leaf. #viceroy #viceroybutterfly #orange #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #beautifulbutterfly #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephotography

comment 5 star 473 November 2019

Some years ago before i knew its name, i saw this beautiful butterfly fly past the window shining iridescent blue in the sunlight.  i rushed outside with my camera and thought it had gone, but then noticed it sunning on a leaf.  i captured a few photos before it flew to this perch and when it closed its wings i could not believe the colors!  as it rested i sat inches away and took some macro shots of what reminded me of a bright flame amid the green shadows.  i really gained a new appreciation for butterflies that day and i love this species called the red-spotted purple :). #redspottedpurple #redspottedpurplebutterfly #admiralbutterly #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #orangebutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #beautiful #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

comment 11 star 567 October 2019

A row of two-flower cynthia along the edge of this rust colored mossy sand path was a great spot to observe this tiny butterfly!  the american copper is about the size of a fingernail and usually stays close to the ground.  this one was particularly cooperative as it nectared on the bright yellow flower long enough for me to switch lenses and capture a macro shot of this awesome moment from only a foot away. :) #americancopperbutterfly #copperbutterfly #orangebutterfly

I've taken more photos of monarchs than any other butterfly so when i looked up and saw this individual feeding on a goldenrod stalk right next to me i snapped a few pics and then continued past, thinking the backlight and overcast wouldn’t make for a great final result. after rediscovering this image recently the whole frame reminds me of an awesome pastel painting with blown out highlights that look like sparks on the flower tips. it really shows off the beautiful spotting and bold line detail of this iconic species. #monarchbutterfly #monarchbutterflies #monarch #monarchs #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #beautifulbutterfly #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #beautiful #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

The black swallowtail is the state butterfly of nj and occurs in every county. while nectaring, their wings are in almost perpetual motion and at rest they usually absorb heat on the dorsal side. luckily the wind brushed over this perch with a strong gust and then subsided causing this male to close his wings and display an amazing ventral view of the underside spots! the bokeh of the background reminds me of stained glass. #blackswallowtail #blackswallowtailbutterfly #swallowtailbutterfly #swallowtail #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #beautiful #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

This awesome variegated fritillary spent only a few seconds on the flower which was swaying in the gentle summer breeze. i took a few steps closer but the butterfly flew off, disappearing deeper into the meadow. i only see a few a year and capturing the underside of the wings is very difficult. i love the mottled yellow-orange coloration. #variegatedfritillary #fritillary #fritillarybutterfly #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #bugsofinstagram #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

If i had to choose my favorite image, this might be the one.  it was a perfect fall day with a soft breeze causing waves over the top of the goldenrod field.  this american lady butterfly flew in as the sun was setting and flitted around a bit before choosing this spot.  i think the wing detail and colors rival any lepidopteran species. #americanladybutterfly #bestnatureshot #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #color #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #yellow #bugsofinstagram #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

My next 9 posts will feature some of my favorite ever photos of local butterflies.  though they aren’t considered rare in the state, i’ve probably been out hiking with my camera a thousand times during their flight season and have only seen this species twice.  the aptly named great spangled fritillary has a regal look and bold shimmering spots that really shine in direct sunlight.  this image has to be one of my all time favorites! #greatspangledfritillary #fritillary #fritillarybutterfly #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #bugsofinstagram #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

Smaller yellow butterflies often go unnoticed as they are so plentiful and have an extended flight period lasting nearly 8 months in my area. seeing them close up opens a world of color and intricacy, displayed by this clouded sulphur nestled into the lower half of a goldenrod stalk. september 2014. canon 60d. #cloudedsulphur #sulphurbutterfly #yellowbutterfly #yellowbutterflies #butterflies #butterfliesofinstagram #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterflyphotography #colorful #colorfulnature #ig_discover_wildlife #insectphoto #insectphotography #insectsofinstagram #insects_of_our_world #instabutterfly #instamoth #lepidoptera #mothphotography #mothsofinstagram #njnature #njshooterz #njwildlife #pollinator #prettymoth #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet
