On a hot day, a hive of bees can use over a quart of water! Keep them healthy and hydrated with this DIY Bee Bath.

Make a DIY Bee Bath

We put out bird baths for the song birds, and nectar for the hummingbirds, but how many of us have thought to set out water for the bees? They may not be the first creatures that come to mind, but bees get thirsty too! They're often attracted to swimming pools, wading pools, buckets with water in them, and birdbaths...but they can easily drown in the deep water. Keep your bees hydrated, and safe, with this super-simple DIY Bee Bath!

Even if you aren't able to keep bees yourself, you can still help them stay hydrated! Setting up a bee bath in your yard is simple-- some shallow water with stones for the bees to land on will do the trick!

A Bobwhite in the Butterfly House

I toured the Ruby N. Priddy Butterfly and Nature Conservatory in Wichita Falls, Texas this morning. I was curious about what there was to see in that big glass building. It was full of surprises. Zebra Heliconian or Zebra Longwing Heliconius charithonia ... Zebra Heliconians flitting around the butterfly feeders, ... an aquatic exhibit with a Gar, that freshwater fish with an elongated, spear-like jaw, ... and Bobwhite Quail. Wait, there's more. The biggest surprise was the exhibit theme…
