      All:
       
      I have put together some potentially useful phenological charts for bees of the Mid-Atlantic area of North America  (Maryland, Delaware, DC, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia).  As mentioned in the slide show this come from 3000 plus sites and 57,000 specmens collected by a whole bunch of folks, whose data are in our databases.  Specifically, I want to thank Heather Harmon, Cathy Stragar, Jane Whitaker, but there were many many others who have helped and continue to help. 
       
      There are slides for about 100 species and most of the genera.
       
      This is really a pretty simplistic presentation, it assumes constant collection rates (which there is not) and consistant geographic coverage (which there is not) and complete geographic coverage (which there is not), but on the other hand there are so many collection events involved and fairly good year long coverage, that the results seem very reasonable....and hopefully useful.
       
      You can check out the slide show at:
       
       
      This is the same site that has the genera ID and technique guides if you haven't looked at them yet.
       
      I am on vacation right now, but when I get back I will try and remember to put up the whole ppt presentation on our ftp site...remind me in a couple of weeks.
       
      We are happy to send you the data if you want to expand this presentation or create your own.

      Decálogo del Artista


      I. Amarás la belleza, que es la sombra de Dios sobre
      el Universo.

      II. No hay arte ateo. Aunque no ames al Creador,
      lo afirmarás creando a su semejanza.

      III. No darás la belleza como cebo para los sentidos,
      sino como el natural alimento del alma.

      IV. No te será pretexto para la lujuria ni para
      la vanidad, sino ejercicio divino.

      V. No la buscarás en las ferias ni llevarás
      tu obra a ellas, porque la Belleza es virgen,
      y la que está en las ferias no es Ella.

      VI. Subirá de tu corazón a tu canto y te habrá
      purificado a ti el primero.

      VII.Tu belleza se llamará también misericordia,
      y consolará el corazón de los hombres.

      VII.Darás tu obra como se da un hijo: restando
      sangre de tu corazón.

      IX. No te será la belleza opio adormecedor,
      sino vino generoso que te encienda para la acción,
      pues si dejas de ser hombre o mujer,
      dejarás de ser artista.

      X. De toda creación saldrás con vergüenza,
      porque fué inferior a tu sueño, e inferior
      a ese sueno maravilloso de Dios,
      que es la Naturaleza.
