Pollen in the pantry: print on sale through June 12th

While inspecting my beehives this morning, I was struck by the mosaic of differently-colored pollen packed in the brood nest. I quickly grabbed my camera, assembled an impromtu field studio, and took the following capture:

Bees mix incoming pollen with honey to form a sort of “bee bread” that serves as protein-rich food for developing larvae. The various colors reflect the source plants.

On uploading this image to facebook, several people inquired about prints. So I am temporarily bringing back the 70%-off sale pricing for just this photo, and just until June 12th. If you’d like pollen to hang on your wall, visit here and click the “buy” button:

I recommend the lustre paper and the 3/4″ standout mount.

One more day for the Spring Print Sale

I was planning to close the Spring Print Sale last night, as scheduled, but since I was driving back from Kansas until late I have decided to keep it going for one extra day.

This Hegemona darkling beetle from Belize has been among the most popular photos of the print sale

Thus, the sale gallery will remain open until 10pm EST tonight for any last-minute orders, with prices starting at $3.99 for a 5×7″:

If you need a framing/mounting recommendation, I particularly like the lustre paper and the 3/4″ standout mount.
