 Paper, pen or pencil, and coloring materials (example: watercolor, colored pencil, or crayon).

 In this workshop, we will create line drawings of three flying look-alike’s in the insect kingdom: syrphids, honeybees and yellowjacket wasps. While many members of the syrphid family (including flowerflies/hoverflies) display color and pattern to mimic the appearance of stinging insects like bees and wasps, they are harmless.
