Have you had a chance to check out Biodiversity Barbados’ Virtual Art Exhibition?

The Ministry of Environment is delighted to once again be working with artists in Barbados to highlight biodiversity and the environment on International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB).  IDB was celebrated on Sunday May 22nd under the theme is ‘Building a Shared Future for All Life’ with the Ministry’s second annual Virtual Art Exhibition.  This year’s Art Exhibit features 30 pieces from different local artists, highlighting the theme of ‘Nature’, and throughout the months of May and June, Biodiversity Barbados will be highlighting the contributing artists and their art.

Today we highlight a photograph by Bruce P. Evelyn (@rbrucepevelyn) entitled ‘Coralita’. Bruce captures in focus the minute hairs on the legs of the honeybee as it perches weightlessly on delicate pink blooms. These hairs securely hold pollen pellets while the bee flies from flower to flower, pollinating them along the way.

Tune in again tomorrow for our next highlighted artist and art combo.
