Created ByHand Challenge - Insects


I was digging in the garden on the weekend and unearthed a bumble bee beneath the ground. I don't know who was more suprised! He was rather dozy and stumbled around before taking flight. This is an encaustic ode to Spring and all of its wonders and is my entry for this week's Created ByHand challenge.

I've never heard of a bumble bee being beneath the ground! Is that weird, or am I just ignorant??? ~Lori

Heather, this is a gorgeous piece. I didn't know bees liked underground. I know yellow jackets make nexts underground.

Wonderful! I would have loved to see the look on your face when you found the underground bumble bee (now made famous in your artwork!). Thanks for taking the challenge!
