honeybees

  • On a warm June day, at our farm in the Mission Valley, I was watching my husband and son play in the yard, honeybees from our two colonies buzzing nearby. Suddenly, my attention was captured by a steady increase in the number of bees on the air, catching and refracting sunlight with their golden bodies.
  • Surprisingly, humans and honey bees are much the same when it comes to sleep. Whether it’s a bee after a full day busily attending to colonial duties or a human after a long day at the office, we both need sleep to continue to function at our best.
