Honey Bees

Honey bees are wonderful creatures. The years before I started beekeeping, I did my best to keep my distance from them as I never wanted to get stung by a bee. I had been stung several times by a bumble bee, and that was enough as a kid.

However, in 2009, I watched a PBS special called Silence of the Bees. Bees were disappearing and it appeared that they needed help. Fall was near, and I found many honey bees working some asters in my hard. I soon found myself watching them up close and started taking pictures of them. That is when the beekeeping bug bit me and I am very happy that it did.
