There aren’t many folks around who would love to adore their beauty in their natural habitat. Of course the first word that comes to your mind when you hear “bee” or “wasp” is run. The picture series below is an initiative of the USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab’s that’s studying and examining various species of wasps, bees and other insects. The close up shots are nothing short of brilliant. Definitely gives us perspective into how beautiful these creatures actually are.
