Taking a break from the studio and I found this little chap just about expired.  A teaspoon of sugar water and….. that’s better – out and about pollinating again he (or she) and back to work.  Quite remarkable.  I really thought it was dying.  Worth a go if you find an ailing bee. So ferw honey bees around, it seems, but bumbles pollinate too.

I grew up on the north coast of Cornwall and although I’ve lived and worked in Southeast Asia, in Spain and in Scotland, all of which informed my work in different ways, Cornwall has always drawn me home.
