Bees & Butterflies

Getting geeky about 

Planting a flower to help feed bees, then watch them visit is fun and easy. For the folks want to go a little deeper, this page is for you.  What bees & butterflies are in the Hamlet and how many can we classify? Using the inaturalist.org site I started to map out what's living here with us. Can you help?  Two ways - send me a photo of a bee and what you think it might be and where you photographed &  I'll get the ID, or set up your own FREE naturalist.org account and get it ID'd there and send me the link and add it to the Stafford Confirmed Sightings page!
