Event description

Description

Bees are the darlings of the insect world. It is a joy to see these insects hard at work, peacefully buzzing from flower to flower. Many people recognise the worth of bees, as well as that they face multiple threats. But very few know about the diversity and importance of our native bee species. There are an estimated 2000 to 3000 bee species in Australia, yet we know very little about the vast majority of these and there are many that are yet to be described.

Bees of Australia introduces some of our incredible native bees, many of which, if you look closely, can be found in your own garden. Photographer James Dorey has captured, in stunning macro photography, a number of native bees with contributions from some of Australia’s leading bee researchers in his book. Join James as he shares his experiences in photographing these wonderful native bees.

Presented as part of the Lord Mayor’s Writers in Residence series.
