Another attempt at painting inspired by Katie's blog:
Honey bees are a subset of bees in the genus
Apis, primarily distinguished by the production
and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests out of wax. (That’s a fancy
description for honey comb.) I was pleased to see so many in my yard this spring. Hopefully they were able to store up sufficient reserves to get them through this brutally dry summer where nothing is blooming.
