    Default Has anyone purchased this poster set? Is is Apis Mellifera?

    I have an appalling lack of art in my house, so I was thinking of finding a large, public-domain image to print as a large poster. And then I remembered all the . . . fun . . . I've had printing inkjet photos at home for my son's school projects, so I decided to see what's for sale.

    This popped up on amazon at a surprisingly good price of ~$60 with free shipping:

    Note that it's already mounted and ready to hang; it's not just a print. So that's a pretty good price, IMHO.

    But this has no customer reviews, and the description says "painting," even thought it looks like a photo.

    And is this Apis Mellifera? I want to be sure before I adorn my house with it :-)

    From what I can tell, it looks like Apis M. to me, and looks like an interesting piece of artwork to be getting. Nice find.

    Actually I'm going to pause a bit on this. That "photo" I posted appears to be photoshopped. If I add up the horizontal dimensions of the 5 panels I get 44", and if I add an inch of empty space in between the whole installation should be 48" wide.

    That "photo" makes it look nearly twice that size.

    I'd love it at 8' wide; at 4' wide it might look a little puny.

    I don't think that's Apis m. bee.
    The more I learn about bees, the less I know.
