Last month’s theme was Pollination, well done to everyone who entered the challenge!
Congratulations to the winner, Dustin. We really loved Dustin’s shot of an Agapostemon Sweat Bee. You can see all of the pollen stuck to it’s furry legs!
Well done to our runner-up, Chinmoy. His shot of this pollinator in the middle of a flower has so much colour, it really caught our eye.
