Move over gift-store tchotchkes, there’s a better travel souvenir in town. Well, at least when it comes to me.
Photos of bees from places I’ve never visited nor will visit in the near future.
And that’s just what friend and fellow blogger from Uncategorized Days did. Just back from an adventure-filled hiking excursion in Iceland, she sent me a batch of gorgeous bumble photos :)
Taken in two different locations, photos showcase Bombus lucorum – the white-tailed bumblebee. The photos taken of bees in the moss campion (Silene acaulis) were shot at the Krýsuvík geothermal area in the Reykjanes Peninsula. The photos including bees in the dandelions were taken at the Þórsmörk Nature Reserve in the Central Highlands.
Iceland is home to three different species of bumblebee, including B. lucorum.
