Using video to identify bumble bees

I attended an "I-opening" workshop in June at the Bullitt Reservation in Ashfield learning to identify bumble bees and participate in a bumble bee census in Massachusetts as a "citizen scientist."

After sharing his research on the startling decline of bumble bees, Worcester Polytech Asst. Professor Rob Gegear demonstrated a new smartphone app called “Bee-cology” for monitoring and protecting bumble bees. This exciting new app is available for download on android phones now!

Here's a practice video of a bumble bee and another one of a silver spotted skipper butterfly at the Western Mass Master Gardeners plot in Northampton Community Gardens.
