Instead of swatting away that buzzing bumblebee this summer, Friends of the Earth Canada is encouraging Ottawans to take its picture and upload it, as part of the Great Canadian Bumble Bee Count, on until Aug. 15.

According to Frances Fyfe, outreach intern for Friends of the Earth, Ottawa is a hotbed of bumblebee species, which makes it a great location for the count.
