If you’ve ever wanted to see a bee or insect up close, look no farther than the USGS Native Bee Inventory and Monitoring Program Flickr page. It is there that the organization that’s set on finding and providing the information that’s needed to manage our biological resources better has placed beautiful images of bees, insects and even plants up close. Extremely up close.
