Carbon

My first 30 foot drawing.

Solitary bee

There are a great many types of bees. The particular bee in this painting is called a solitary bee and has a green furry back. She and her kind place their young in hollow reeds. They create a wax next inside, fill it with honey and larvae, cap it off and place another on top. […]
