Xylocopa caerulea “Blue Carpenter bee”

HOLY SHIT THEY’RE BLUE

Blue carpenter bees are the best

… COBALT THIS NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

OMG they’re so pretty!  I had no idea there were blue bees!  I wish to be surrounded with them at all times.

And a giant mythical subspecies is available as familiars in Flight Rising, apparently?

Coral carpenter bee familiar.  I pet mine every day.  (Yes, in FR you can pet bees.)

THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS 

In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
