Bees' Knees

I have a secret: I want to have bee hives of my own to tend, watch and harvest, as well as just sit and take pictures. I've been waiting for them to appear in a patch of coneflowers near my home.  Today, I was able to stop to watch them work. They're not honey bees, which are too fast for me to get pictures of, but I like their earnestness and complete concentration 
on their job.

Mmmmm … Honey.
My friend Helen keeps bees. She scares the crap out of me by standing there, grinning, with her entire arm coated in a whole swarm of them. You need to be a certain kind of mad to keep bees.
Having said that, the honey is fantastic!
