Bumbles-bees are really cute

So speaking of natural history illustration, that is something I've always thought would be an ideal job. To get to observe and be in the outdoors, and carefully draw a perfect representation. When I studied Zoology, drawing diagrams and sketches in the lab and on field trips was by far my most favourite thing of the whole course. Man I miss those Zoology days.
Here's a painting that I did a few years ago of a real bumble bee I found (dead) and pinned (I also loved entomology in Zool). This painting was for when I was thinking of applying for a Natural History course in the University of Newcastle.
