Wild Bees: Photographs by Paula Sharp & Ross Eatman

February 10, 2018 - March 25, 2018

| Free

Featuring dazzling macro photographs of wild bees in their natural habitats, the photography of Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman brings viewers closer to wild bees. Through their lenses, the tremendous variety of shapes, colors and sizes of the insect is captured. The essential role bees play in our planet’s health comes into view.

The photographs are part of an ongoing wild bee project undertaken by photojournalist and writer Paula Sharp and nature photographer Ross Eatman, who began documenting wild bees inhabiting New York’s Rockefeller State Park Preserve and neighboring Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in 2014. While many people are aware of the collapse of European honey bee populations, fewer know that native insect pollinators are declining globally due to a combination of habitat loss and fragmentation, pesticide use, pathogens, and invasive species. Native bees pollinate both wild plants and agricultural crops – many of which cannot be pollinated by honey bees.
