HoneyLove Urban Beekeepers

Here are a couple of photos for the Inlander at HoneyLove for a story about beekeeping in urban environments. This is the second bee story I have worked on in the past few years. Each time, I am amazed at the work the bees do to create and maintain their hives, filling individual cells with pollen and tending to their brood.

      It’s a scary allergy as many bad things can happen once you get stung. But, yes the honey is good. The scary thing is that we still don’t know for certain why colony collapse is happening. There are many theories but definitive answers are slim.
