Happy Earth Day! Let’s watercolor everything we love about Earth!
Let’s paint a bee!
Bees aren’t just fun to paint, they are amazing little insects!
From World Book Online:
"Flowers provide food for bees. The bees collect tiny grains of pollen and a sweet liquid called nectar from the blossoms they visit. They make honey from the nectar, and use both honey and pollen as food. During their food-gathering flights, bees spread pollen from one flower to another, thus pollinating (fertilizing) the plants they visit. This enables the plants to reproduce. Numerous wild plants and such important food crops as fruits and vegetables depend on bees for fertilization."
