Magic pollinators

As it is coming to the end of pollinator season for 2019, it seemed an appropriate time to have a celebration of all the magic off pollinators and the work they do.

Butterflies and moths are only incidental pollinators, it is the bees and hoverflies that visit the flowers for both nectar and pollen.

    I can imagine a predator being frightened off by the dramatic ‘face ‘ on the peacock butterfly. Is that a hoverfly with the red spots ? We need your beautiful pictures on giant posters everywhere so that people are reminded how essential they are.
