Our team receiving our #Honey Centrifuge!
A honey centrifuge is a mechanized device which is used for the extraction of honey from #bee combs without damaging them. The device works by way of centrifugal force! The extractor contains a cylindrical drum that holds the frame basket, and by spinning it around is able to extract honey out of the combs. The advantage of doing this is that the wax and combs remain intact and can be returned to the #bees for use!
Bees play an integral part in #foodsecurity and #pollination

Young Prestfelde artist James Boughey is among the winners of this year’s Nancy Rothwell Award. Each award celebrates artwork that captures the intricacies of anatomy, and this year more than 300 entries were submitted including specimen drawings and models of animals, plants and aspects of microscopy.

Entries were submitted from across the country for the three age categories (7-11, 12-14 and 15-18), and were judged by a panel consisting of biologists and illustrators.

Winners of the award, named after the first President of the Society, receive drawing equipment, a certificate, £25 for themselves, and £100 for their school at this year's Annual Awards ceremony at the Francis Crick Institute, London, as part this year’s Biology Week.

Both highly commended entrants and winners are also invited to a day of training from a professional animal illustrator, based at the Royal Veterinary College.

James Boughey, aged 11, from Prestfelde School in Shrewsbury, was the winner of the 7-11 category, with his detailed collection of drawings of the bumblebee.

On winning the award, James said: “I chose to study bees as I see a lot of them in my garden. “I understand how important they are to the world. We need them for pollination of our plants and I am eager to raise awareness.” #prestfeldeart #arteducation #nancyrothwell #nancyrothwellaward #artaward #beeanatomy #beeart #watercolourbee #beeaware #beeawareness #arteducation #artmeetsscience #sciencemeetsart

I can’t be the only one 🤷‍♂️ Sometimes I like to believe the bee prefers my vibration over the flower (lol).. so I extend my hand like a gentle runway to rest their wings - while spectators either run for their lives, swat away like a madman, or watch in disbelief 🤣🐝

Having the time of their life! Sunday BEE fun.
Late planting of natives can have beneficial effects for insect species. #echinaceapurpuria #purpleconeflower #chattanooga #tennessee #landstreamdesign #beeawareness #beefun #noneonicotinoids

“Globally there are more 🐝🐝honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world's most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees (...). The honey bee 🐝 🍯 plays an essential role in pollination of commercial crops,  with around 80% of the US crop said to be dependent on honey bees.” Source: www.sustainweb.org

Despite of how important they are, honey bees 🐝 are currently seriously endangered due to the development of the mobile technology industry and the massive use of toxic fertilizers. .

🌿Spray free plantations using only natural organic fertilizers like the 🌿Iberluffa ones are the perfect environment for bees. .

Get your bee friendly 🌿Iberluffa sponge at Green Elephant, The Goodness Grocer, The Natural Health Co., IE Produce, Eco Kitchen or Pachamama and you will be supporting the Galician Honey Beekeepers Association.

I found a bee on the floor, gave her some honey and thought it would be nice to record and share it to spread the word; Sometimes the bees need some sugar intake to continue flying, specially if it get trapped inside a house for long hours.
Unfortunately, the cat came over and ruined the magic 🤦‍♂️ #bristol #cotham #bee #expatlife #livingabroad #feedabee

Flying to Missouri today for the American Society of Botanical Artists Conference. I am giving a talk there on Bees- not just about my artwork but why I feel artists should include bees in their paintings, as well as tips on how to paint them. I’ve had an amazing time in Boston and Seattle, and leave knowing that I’ve managed to convince a few people to become Bee Warriers!! 🐝💕🎨😊

3rd Year Project 🐝Inspired by Sir David Attenborough’s post on bee population this summer, I decided to create an awareness project. “In the last 5 years the bee population has dropped by 1/3. If bees were to disappear, humans would have just 4 years left to live.” Swipe right to view some of my inspired photography taken at Kew Gardens, Essex, Heswall, Shrewsbury and Dublin 🐝
