Bumblebees of The Peak District
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Becca Thorne | Share link: http://illo.cc/83368

My newest print, showing the nine bumblebee species resident in the UK Peak District, was inspired by my BeeWalks for The Bumblebee Conservation Trust. At the centre is the infamous Bilberry Bumblebee, one of the UK’s rarest bumbles and the focus of the BBCT’s Pollinating the Peak conservation project.

The print is compiled of eight individual chine-colle linocuts, and presented as a high quality A3 giclee on Hahnemuhle etching paper. It’s is available through my Etsy shop.
