  • Had a day trip into the foothills of the Himalayas yesterday and was taken to the edge of an apiary for Apis mellifera. These photos were taken with an iPhone6 and I regret the lack of detail but we could not get closer. Yes, the hives have been set in some protective niches on the slope but can you see how they are constructed? They look like they were composed of crumbling brick...

  • I have met the author and own one of his books (private press). We visited one of his midge orchid (Genoplesium) sites in Langwarrin, Victoria. He is also known for his underwater photography. These photos are startling in clarity. The orchid group depicted in this volume consists of species dependent on bees but also on tiny flies (scatopsids, chloropids) and some are pollinated...

  • For those who received this email a few minutes ago I apologize for forgetting to include the link. Here is an unusual story. In Australia there are many orchid species that are pollinated by male wasps. The orchids mimic the bodies of females but little was known about their fragrances. It appears that some of the scent molecules in one orchid species contain sulfur atoms. There...

  • Dear Kelly: Thanks for sharing but poisoned plants are much closer to my home in Saint Louis than I anticipated. I went to our local Home Depot to buy my wife a bag of potting soil (I'm big on romantic gifts). While there I treated myself to two pots of perennials. Upon taking them home and planting them in the garden I received an unpleasant surprise. When I removed the little...
