This is my new weekly segment. The goal is to get folks - kids and adults - outside with a camera to take photos of pollinators - and other insects.
Why pollinators? Not only because so much of what we eat and enjoy in our landscapes is due to pollinators but because pollinators are easy to photograph. Butterflies aside, they are so busy pollinating, most bees and flies don't even notice your camera.
My week's photos are below. Please add yours through the link up below and check out the existing link ups. I was thrilled to have two young bloggers - Wild West Gardeners and Animal Justice participate.

Yes, flies count as pollinators! Look how pretty they are up close.
