This dead bee is the latest in my dead bee collection. Yes, I have a collection of them. I find them dead in my yard and I add them to my little box. Weird, I know. I feel that I somehow honor their presence, life, and job here on earth by noticing. Anyway, my neighbor told me that these huge black bees are called Woodcutter bees. I dunno... but I like them. I had forgotten how much I enjoy drawing insects until I started him. Poor thing, his wings are kinda' outta' whack, which called for the title of the page Anyway, so far, this is my favorite sketch of the first week of this challenge.
We are leaving Saturday morning for a week in Oceanside and I can't wait, although I feel like I have so much to do. The boys don't know yet! ;)
