Artists in the small town of Hebden Bridge in England have created a massive bumblebee painting on World Bee Day on Friday to raise awareness about the vanishing animals.
The huge bumblebee was painted on the playing field of Hebden Royd Primary School using paints usually used to draw the lines for football pitches. The painting is a creation of Jamie Wardley and Dave Martin, whose daughter attends the school.
Rising temperatures, heavy pesticide use and habitat loss have caused drastic declines in bumblebees across Europe and North America.
