Mojave Poppy Bee and California Bear Poppy Giclée Print
Perdita meconis and Arctomecon californica
Like many people interested in pollination ecology, I had my first deep introduction through The Forgotten Pollinators by Stephen Buchmann and Gary Paul Nabhan. One relationship depicted in the book is between a tiny Perdita bee and the bearclaw poppy on which it was totally reliant for nectar and pollen. While the bee is now considered extinct in Utah, where the bearclaw poppy is found, it can still be found in the deserts of Nevada on the California bear poppy.
This 5.5” x 5.5″ giclee is printed with archival inks onto matte archival art paper (there is a white border around the image to allow for framing). It’s backed by foamcore board, and signed in pencil on the front.
