The home of animal artists

‘Cooling Off’ by David Lyons

The Association of Animal Artists offers opportunities and support to animal artists who have already attained a level of expertise and experience, whether as amateurs or professionals and who wish to promote and exhibit their artwork and further progress their skills.

AAA invites artists to join us for a variety of art events throughout the year. It is the friendship and genuine support that the artists give each other, and to the charities AAA supports, which are the hallmark of the Association.

A 45 million year old insect perfectly preserved in Amber.I'm pleased to finally share with you the first image from a new series photographing amber inclusions. This insect is from the Baltic region and it was encased in tree sap approximately 45 million years ago. Yes, that's 45,000,000 years ago! Photographing these creatures really is like looking back in time, I find it surreal to think that this insect has been waiting there all those years for it to end up in my studio! All the detail in this 4mm creature is perfectly preserved as though it was a modern day specimen. Working with insects in amber brings many new photographic challenges and it's taken some time to be able to produce an image that is as detailed and sharp as my other insect work. The effort is certainly worth it though and this is an image that I'm really proud of. Hope you like it too. LB

More fascinating bumblebee facts.There is nothing more soothing than the sound of a bumblebee in a summer garden. Chances are that the bumblebee will be this one, the Garden bumblebee (Bombus hortorum). Bumblebees use something called buzz pollination, or sonication, which is where they use their wing muscles to vibrate their whole body in order to encourage flowers to release their precious pollen. 🐝
Tomatoes are one of the plants that need buzz pollination to produce fruit, and commercial growers who keep bumblebees in or near their glasshouses tend to have bigger crops.
So every time you pick up your tomato ketchup, remember that a bee made it happen!! 🍅🥫🐝💕 @ Dublin, Ireland
