Macrophotography From Pearl's Fen, Fairborn Ohio

The Beaver Creek Wetlands Association continues its collaboration with Greene County Ohio Parks and Trails on many parks such as Pearl’s Fen, near Fairborn, Ohio.  In highlighting the wonders of its newest park, the B-W Greeenway subsequently teamed up with the Fairborn Art Association for an art exhibit featuring works that draw inspiration from this special wetland.  This is one such art print entails a polished ladybug (Cycloneda munda) which methodically explored every flower cluster of this fennel plant (Foeniculum vulgare) called umbels.

In highlighting the wonders of its newest park, the B-W Greeenway teamed up with the Fairborn Art Association for an art exhibit featuring works which draw inspiration from this wetland. I submitted this print of a polished ladybug (Cycloneda munda) which I watched methodically explore every flower cluster of this fennel plant (Foeniculum vulgare) called an umbel.

A framed version of this print is on display at the Fairborn Art Association until 25 July 2021.  If you'd like to see more prints of pollinators, check out this gallery of bees and butterflies.
