You can see The Art of Pollination - Blooms, Butterflies and Bees - an exhibition by the Bath Society of Botanical Artists at Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Society from 10th to 28th September.
All the work on show is the result of two years work by the group The exhibits are paintings and drawings of plants that can be grown to promote pollination in flora and crops by bees and insects. It's a little known fact that more than 80% of European crops rely on insects for pollination.

Several members of the Society have been awarded medals by the Royal Horticultural Society for their skills in depicting plants. As well as painting in watercolours, members also work in pen and ink, coloured pencil and graphite. The 30+ artists artists include:
