Following the bees

So in keeping with the bee theme here, I came across this article a few weeks ago about what are believed to be one of the earliest drawings of bees, somewhere between 1625 and 1630.

These drawings are courtesy of a compound microscope sent to the artist by their friend Galileo. The article is entitled “Spring Bees over at our local newspaper, the Webster-Kirkwood Times.

Sincerely-
