Sketches for a future drawing. Testing the composition, elements, etc. I might change some things.

You can upcycle 2-liter bottles by cutting them in half and using the top as a funnel, or inverting the top piece into the bottom half to make an instant wasp or bee catcher. Source
You can use a small piece of raw fish to attract wasps and yellow jackets, just had a little moisture from time to time, they’re pretty cool with it a bit rotten; they just want the protein. If one does manage to get out of the trap with some meat, they’ll be sure to tell their friends about the source. I’ve also heard pop, water and vinegar, beer or even laundry detergent works for them, going to try the beer one out for myself. Most of all avoid hanging traps by flowering gardens, trees, or any other place Bees like to hang out. Save the Bees yo.
Hey, guys? Please don’t kill wasps, either. They ARE pollinators too, and if the bees go, they’re one of the sorts of critters that will still be around to pollinate plants, including those we get food from. Plus some wasps prey on insects that devastate crops or are otherwise considered pests.
I know they get a bad rap because some wasp species are really aggressive, they can sting multiple times, and some of them are really good at hiding their nests so you don’t know about them until you’ve walked near it and gotten stung. But wasps are just doing what they need to do to survive—protect themselves and their homes and young. And we can learn how to coexist with them; yes, there are extreme situations like wasps building a big nest in your attic or being allergic to wasp stings, but most of the time they’re in their own space and aren’t a big threat if you just respect them and don’t bother them.
Finally, isn’t it rather sad how we only value animals based on how useful they are to us? Maybe if we self-centered humans pay more attention to the pollination and other activities of wasps, we’ll be less inclined to treat them like evil beings sent to harass us rather than just one of many species living on a diverse planet. If you want to help protect insects and other invertebrates crucial to all ecosystems, I recommend donating to the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
Predominantly found in Australia, the Letter-winged kite (Elanus scriptus) is a rare raptor. They are the only fully nocturnal raptor, and their soft almost owl-like feathers ensure they can fly quietly and without disturbance.

Breakfast Birds. Each morning at our small hotel in Maun, Botswana, the waitresses would refill a tray with stale bread. lots of different breeds would feed there - images above (I’m sorry bird recognition is not my strong point)
If any one knows what breeds they are - please let me know! (thank you)
