Seen a hairy looking thing with 6 legs and 2 pairs of wings, but not sure what it is?

Then make your way over to Discover Life and in particular their Bee and Apoidea section. They provide free on-line tools to identify species, teach and study nature’s wonders, report findings, build maps, process images, and contribute to and learn from a growing, interactive encyclopedia of life with just under 1.3 million species pages and over 1/2 million maps.

They also have tests to check your identification skills.

Definitely a site worth bookmarking.
