When you think of bees, you might not immediately think of them as majestic, beautiful or even positive in any way. Photographer and naturalist Clay Bolt has set out to change that.

The photographs were taken for the Beautiful Bees project, and aim to change the way we think about, research and see bees. You can see from the photographs that there are many kinds of this frequently-hated insect, and a closer look reveals colors and features that are often overlooked and endearing.

Seeing the bees this way, Bolt hopes will help people to respect and protect the nature around them.  See more photographs of bees, and other insects, birds and amphibians on Bolt’s website.
