Local bee features in native bee stamp and coin set
A Woy Woy Bay wildlife photographer has had one of his images featured in one of Australia Post's latest commemorative stamp and coin sets.
Mr Michael Doe's image of a native cuckoo bee has been featured prominently in Australia Post's new native bees stamp and coin set.
He said he captured the image of the bee in bushland around Woy Woy on a photography expedition.
The cuckoo bee is named for its use of the nests of other native bees, such as the blue-banded bee.
For the use of his photograph, Mr Doe received $250 from Australia Post.
Mr Doe is a part of Project Maratus, a not-for-profit research group established in 2015 to study the peacock spider.
He said it would be used to aid Project Maratus in its ongoing research.
