You need to upload the picture/s to a free hosting site, such as Photobucket etc.

In Photobucket's case, there is an option to copy and paste a special piece of code for the image, that you would then paste into your post on here. And that's basically it. When you submit the post, your picture appears in it.

In some other hosting sites, it is slightly different. You would simply open the page in the site where your uploaded picture resides and then copy the address from the address bar. Then paste it into your post on here. Then, highlight the pasted address. Then, if you look at the various buttons above your post, while your are editing it, you will see a button called "Img". With the address of your image still highlighted, you need to press the "Img" button. This, then parenthesizes the address with some special code. You can then submit the post and your picture will appear.

As a matter of interest, you can post any image from the internet on here using the above method. That is to say, if you find a picture, open that in it's own page, copy the address and follow the second set of instructions, above.

Quality Top Bar Hives by Andrew Vidler

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
