National Insect Week returns in 2022

#NatureDrawingClub with Natural History Museum

Friday, June 26, 2020 - 00:00 to 15:00

We may be stuck indoors but that doesn't mean we have to stop enjoying nature. You can draw, paint or sculpt - anything that shows off your artistic side. No matter your experience, we want to see what you're creating.

For #NatureDrawingClub in National Insect Week we want to see all your drawings and paintings of beetles, moths, bees, flies and more! Impress us with your hexapods!

Show us your work by using #NatureDrawingClub on Twitter and Instagram, tag us in your story, or comment on our weekly Facebook post!

Sexiest

Female water snipe flies Atherix ibis clasp each other and cluster in big round aggregations on the end of branches overhanging rivers – males entering the swarms are mated repeatedly until they die. The females then lay their eggs in to the water – and all die still in their tight aggregations.
