One of my favourite display cases in the new #Insectarium of #Montréal . The #beetles are so beautiful!

Hairy-footed Hairy-legged Bee (Dasypoda plumipes) illustration made with coloured pencils on a A2 board panel. 🐝

Another large-scale illustration - this time of a species I see a lot of in the UK. They use their bushy hind legs to collect and transport pollen!
