Photo Contest Winner!
Big Congratulations to Samuel McTavish: Winner of EYA’s 2015 Pollinator Photo Contest!
Syrphid Flies, like this photo demonstrates, are also an important group of pollinators that mimic looking like bees as a protective defense against predators. Sam noted that he could see this fly using its tongue and feet to collect the pollen as he snapped the photo.
This year’s winner will receive a Pollinator Garden starter kit from EYA.
Thanks to all contestants for their effort and artistic attention capturing the fascinating lives of Pollinators around Vancouver! Happy Pollinator Week 2015!
