On day 357 of 365 Days Wild I spent some time drawing a bee.
The Cranesbill flowers are currently growing quite profusely along the grass verges beside the local lanes, so I collected a handful of sprigs for my bee art. It wasn’t until I looked at them closely that I realized that there are actually two different types of Cranesbill to be found. The larger, brighter pink flowers are, I think, Dove’s-foot Crane’s-bill (Geranium molle), and the smaller, paler flowers are Small-flowered Crane’s-bill (Geranium pusillum).
Once I arrived home I arranged the flowers first around my new bee and then also around some of the bees that I’ve previously drawn.
Have you been inspired by nature recently?
