Our lemon, sweet lime and orange trees growing next to each other produce fruits undergoing a bit of an identify crisis. Although we'd like to believe that they are conspiring with pollinators 🐝🐦 But jokes apart, we believe that there's some truth to the old wives tale after all. Otherwise why would our mausambis (sweet lime) taste lemony? Scientifically speaking, cross pollination is only supposed to impact the seeds of the fruit bearing tree but looks like an urban (farm) legend is coming true at #theprodigalcookfarms.Do you have a similar experience to share with us? So next time when life gives you lemons, don't worry they might just be oranges in disguise! 😋 #crosspollination #sweetlime #citrusfruits #lemon #oldwivestales #farmlegends #farmgrownfacts #lifegivesyoulemons #tpcfarms #farmmiracles #oranges #citrus #urbanfarms #pollinators #farmtales

Pararhophites orobinus – these are an enigmatic group of bees from the deserts of Central Asia.  They make shallow nests in the ground where their brood cells are completely unlined with the waterproofing glandular secretions or other materials that most bees line their brood cells with. Such a nest architecture is unlikely to persist in wetter areas. #BeeOfTheDay #BeesOfInstagram #Bee #Bees #Pararhophites #Entomology #SaveTheBees #Insects #Nature #Pollinator #Pollinators #Pollination #BeesOfTheWorld #NaturalHistory #BeautifulBees #WildBees

I’ve been neglecting my Instagram profile for a little while, so I’ve got tons of photos from this summer to add! Sometimes I get into a slump where I just don’t feel like being on social media, but I’m always happier when I return. 🤗

Bees are an integral part of our ecosystem but more importantly is the huge part the play in our food system. Without them we will loose avocados, almonds, and mangoes to name a few. Bee the change you wish to see in the world and plant some pollinator friendly plants this season. P.s. Floridas growing season actually starts now doesn't end until we start seeing summer again. #homegrown #bees #gardening #garden #orchard #sustainableliving #pollinators #pollinators #super #growth

During this time of year, honey bees are working hard preparing their homes and protecting themselves for the long winter months ahead, and propolis is that glue that holds it all together and provides the best defense for their immunity. #propolis #beeglue #elbowgrease #knowyourbees #hivetool #beekeeping #bee #honey #beekeeping #beekeeper #bees #honeybee #nature #naturelovers #beefacts #pollinators #savethebees #sustainability

Goldenrod aka Solidago spp. ~a wonder weed~ Currently, my field is full of goldenrod with a sprinkling of purple asters here and there. Just beautiful💛💜 I let it re-wild this year (instead of mowing it) and the wild flowers haven’t stopped since last May, with the biggest show for the end of the summer: a field of gold. And the butterflies came. Loads of them, especially Monarchs, Swallowtails, Great Spangled Fritillary, Luna Moth and Galium Sphinx Moth. Bees, wasps, ladybugs, dragonflies, hummingbirds, and all sorts of birds. Toads (including wart, who lives in the vegetable garden), frogs, and salamanders. This is a pesticide, herbicide and GMO Free zone and the insects, butterflies, bees and all their friends and foes love it💕 Did you know that goldenrod’s leaves support more than 110 species of caterpillars and many species of leaf beetles and June beetles, which in turn provide the food needed by breeding birds. The flowers produce pollen and nectar for many specialist bee species, many generalist bees, and the honeybee, and goldenrod nectar is an important source of energy for migrating monarchs as well. Goldenrod flowers are also favorite hunting sites for crab spiders and praying mantids, important members of the natural enemy community. Wait...there is more. Goldenrod seeds feed wintering sparrows, juncos, and finches; and the stems provide housing for native bees during both summer and winter and are feeding sites for many planthoppers and leafhoppers. If you are interested in learning what flowers are the best to plant for a pollinator garden, I posted a list on my site at www.priscillawoolworth.com ~live link in bio above~ #goldenrod #fieldofgold #pollinators #insects #love #weeds #wildflowers #priscillawoolworthphotography

Bringing home these empty honeybee's combs to Kei Islands. Thank you @putraleuser for the gift. Will use these for getting some wild Apis Cerana honeybees to start caring and keeping them. My first target will be learning to prepare food (flower garden) for them, while making wooden boxes or hollow logs to provide suitable comfort homes for them. Hopefully they will come fast. The combs will be rub inside the logs so they will kinda recognize some bees smells. One of bee's language is smelling pheromones so it will help them familiarize with the new home. Will involve some Kei Islands' teens who already are on our organic farming program. This will help them with some new skill that will benefit their farms. . . . . . #beekeeping #beekeeper #instabee #ilovebees #beesofinstagram #honeybee #bees #bee #beekeepingadventures #savethebees🐝 #pollinators #savethebees #savenature #travelblogger #travelgram #roamtheplanet #theglobewanderer #passionpassport #thegreatoutdoors #discoverearth #nature #lovefornature #saveearth #planetearth #journey #lifejourney #travelwithpurpose #traveldiaries

UrbanBeeSF is representing for @slowfoodusa speaking @terramadre about chemical and pesticide free food for all pollinators. Talking just about honeybees is the same mindset as monoculture farming. We have to include ALL insects and birds’ right to exist if we hope to have a future with butterflies and bumbles!

I found one of my girls in a flower pot this morning. I gave her a little sugar water and carried her back to the hive. It could be she’s reaching the end of her life or it could be she was a little late getting home last night and was too cold. Either way it’s really cool holding one of my bees in my bare hands. #beekeeping #honey #workerbees #pollinators #savethebees #urbanbeekeeping

While enjoying @aultpark I found a tagged monarch! The little sticker allows scientists to study the monarch migration in greater detail. By recording the tag code, date, gender, and location of each individual, we are able to see from where they originated and how far they traveled. For many, it can be thousands of miles. The best part is that monarchs are tagged and tracked by citizen scientists- people who might not hold jobs in the field of science, but who volunteer their time and effort to further scientific research. Anyone can become a citizen scientist and there are countless ways and different fields in which to do so. #savethemonarchs #monarchbutterfly #pollinators #citizenscience #aultpark #cincinnati #butterfliesofinstagram

🐝SAVE THE BEES - EVERYDAY🐝 Ep. 7 This is our 10 part series of small actions YOU can take in your DAILY LIFE life to make a difference for bees and pollinators! EPISODE 7: 🐝🍯CLEAN YOUR HONEY JARS BEFORE DISPOSING THEM🐝🍯 Did you just finish your honey jar and about to throw the glass away? Then read this: After the summer season, when less flowers are available, bees and other pollinators often look for food and too often stumble on honey from the disposed honey glasses. 🧐 Imported honey might be affected by bee diseases such as the American Foulbrood.😷 These diseases can spread also through honey leftovers that are accessible to foraging honey bees. They carry the disease to their hives, which threatens the whole colony. The endospores that trigger the disease spread through honey remains in honey glasses. This happens for instance when honey is being disposed in trash containers.😵 What should you do? 🤗 Clean empty honey glasses properly, before bringing them to the trash!💦 Are you a beekeeper? Do not feed your bees with imported or blended honey! For the same reasons above, you should use only the fresh honey from your own hive.🤗 More ideas to save the bees here: 🐝 https://bees4life.org/learn/what-can-you-do or 🐝 follow us on Instagram @bees4life_ig Digital illustration by our friend and supporter @artmospheradesign 🌻

Hey, Tigers! 🐯🦋 . @nikapsilva here, taking over for today! Swipe for a time lapse of a garden tiger moth from the UK (you guys call the caterpillars ‘woolly bears” I believe! 🐻). She made her way eventually to the desert, along with some wild sweetwilliam, in my collage work "William And Hobbes" 🐅🐅🐅 . Old school drawing is my first love in art, and who can’t help but be struck by the beauty of our pollinator animals - the details in this little winged creature were a joy to draw 😊 . Spot the horizon lines in coloured cut paper here for some of the actual colours of this beauty - bright orange, cream, brown and blue-black dots! . . . #RPAF #artfair #makeithappen #affordableart #buyart #londonart #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #tigermoth #pollinators #moths #illustration #blackandwhite #drawing #pen #ink #handmade #paperart #abstract #colour #color #design #art #artistrunfair #artexhibition

There was a spring in my step on the weekend, while touring Pine Crest Orchard with veteran orchardist and horticulturist John Galbraith. The orchard is usually closed outside of fruit picking season, so we jumped at a chance to see the orchard in bloom, and frolic through a soon-to-be fruit salad on a much larger scale than the mere handful of fruiting trees in our humble backyard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀John led us across the orchard, showing us the various stages of bloom and fruit, and had us up close and personal with the varying floral reproductive parts of different fruits. He was generous with his knowledge, explaining his approach to planting and the role he plays as orchardist from flowering to fruit. I certainly learnt more amidst the rows of trees than one would in the isles of the supermarket. After the tour we were allowed to wander on our own and picnic beneath the blossoms. On this particular weekend white clouds of cherry blossom were putting on the best show- a contrast in colour to the pretty-in-pink plum blossom. The quince and apples met them in the middle: the former with lovely, large dusty pink flowers, and the latter bedecked in furiously blushing buds and white blooms. Little, green baby apricot fruits were already nestled against their branches. I’m pleased I managed to capture tiny, stingless native bees in action through a lens. Wherever we stood we could hear the chimes of bellbirds hidden from view in the trees beyond the orchard. It was a lovely way to spend part of a sunny spring day. #springfever #appleblossoms #fruitblossom #ig_flowers #orchard #orchards #orchardlife #orchardist #plantsciences #agscience #scienceisfun #pollinators #pollination #nativebeesaustralia #sydneynativebees #beelove #bluemountainsnsw

DID YOU KNOW that Monarch Butterflies orange wings are a warning color, identifying itself to predators that the butterfly will taste bad or may be toxic?!? 🦋 ✅ In one of the world’s astounding natural animal events each fall, tens of millions of monarch butterflies migrate up to 3K miles from the Northeastern US and Canada down to their wintering grounds in Central Mexico to escape the frosts of winter. In fact, tagged monarch butterflies have even been found to travel over 250 miles in one day. The migration is due to the fact that monarchs can’t survive the cold northern winters, unlike other butterflies that can survive as larvae, pupae, or even as adults in some cases. As a result, the monarch is the only butterfly known to make a two-way migration, similar to birds. ✅ One of the enigmas around this migration phenomenon is how millions of infant butterflies who have never been to their ancestral breeding grounds return to the very trees that their parents roosted in before they were born. ✅ A monarch butterfly can flap its wings up to 120 times in a minute when trying to escape a predator. Their flight speed has been measured between 4 and 12 miles per hour but can be much faster if a monarch uses available wind currents that will speed it up considerably. ✅ Monarchs know when it is time to migrate south for the winter based on the environmental cues associated with seasonal changes. They then get naturally high using air currents and thermals to travel such incredible distances. In fact, the highest monarch was recorded at 11K ft by a glider pilot – that’s over two miles up in the air! Just to put this into perspective, most birds fly below 500 ft, hot air balloons only go up about 200 ft, and even songbird migrations occur in the 2K-4K ft high range. There’s not really much else going on above 11K feet other than Mt. Everest (30K ft) and passenger jets (36K ft). #wildlifewednesdays #wildlifewednesday #monarchs #MonarchButterflies #SaveTheMonarch #Butterflies #Pollinators #TuesdayMotivation #EcoHero #EcoHeroes #ActionForNature #NatureNews #Environmentalist #Environementalists #SaveMotherNature #SaveThePlanet

I believe this is a female carpenter bee. Unlike a honey bee, she is a solitary insect that lives and nests alone. They are excellent pollinators for tomato and other vegetables. ...🐝👀... Watch closely as she works to pierce the Soapwart pod. She eventually has success and gets her nectar and flus off! . I love the sound of her wings! #bee #pollinators #detroitbees
