Including photos with your Wild Pollinator Count submission is entirely optional, but they can help us to respond to any queries you have about the insects you saw. We always love to see the diversity of insects spotted during the Count!

Many thanks to those whose photos appear below for giving us permission to share them. 
Also a shout out to everyone that shared images via social media, by adding records to iNaturalist or promoted the count using our #WildPollinatorCount hashtag. 

A reminder that even outside our count periods you can add photos of insects visiting flowers (or other nature observations) to nature mapping sites like iNaturalist. These offer another way to share observations and help to build our collective knowledge. If you’re interested, find out more by starting here.
