134 Ashley Macpherson  Bumblebee

Ashley Macpherson Australia 'Bumblebee' Copperplate etching & aquatint Bumblebees like other species are in decline due to changing land use and mechanisation. Food supplies for bumblebees have declined but there are conservation efforts in countries that have bumblebee populations. In New Zealand they have for many years been used to pollinate tomato plants and hopefully will continue to do so for years to come. In Tasmania they have replaced hand pollination in some instances.
