So yesterday we recorded an interview with National Wildlife Federation naturalist David Mizejewski about how we can all help save bees. Along with planting native plants and joining their Gardening for Wildlife campaign, he told us that Beesponsible will donate $1 (up to $100K) to NWF for every social media post folks do with the hashtag #dontkillmybuzz
and tag @beesponsible.
So, I'm going to start posting my photos of bees to learn more about them, and help them get the $100K! Now I thought this little buzzer I saw at Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge last year was a bee because of its body shape. Nope, true to its fly wings, I just learned that it's a bee-fly, and a crucial pollinator for our summer flowers here in southern Arizona.
