Honey bees on a honeycomb

Honey bees (Apis mellifera) on a honeycomb. The chambers in a honeycomb are created using wax secreted by the bees. The chambers are then filled with honey, using nectar obtained from flowers, and capped with wax. These honeycombs are part of a beehive, a structure built by a beekeeper who removes honeycombs and harvests the honey in them. Because bees store honey to provide food over winter, the bee keeper replaces it with syrup for the bees to feed upon. Photographed in the Novgorod region of Russia

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate world of honey bees on a honeycomb. The image captures the remarkable process by which these industrious insects create their homes and store food for survival. Each chamber in the honeycomb is meticulously crafted using wax secreted by the bees themselves, forming a mesmerizing pattern that reflects nature's precision. The chambers are then filled with golden honey, derived from nectar collected from vibrant flowers, before being sealed with more wax. These honeycombs serve as an essential part of a beehive, carefully built by beekeepers who skillfully harvest the precious liquid gold contained within them. Photographed in the picturesque Novgorod region of Russia, this snapshot offers a glimpse into the fascinating world of these tiny creatures. It highlights their vital role in pollination and emphasizes their contribution to our ecosystem. As winter approaches, bees rely on stored honey as their primary source of sustenance. To ensure their well-being during this period, beekeepers replace harvested combs with syrup for nourishment. This photograph not only celebrates the beauty found in nature but also serves as a reminder of our interconnectedness with wildlife and our responsibility to protect and preserve it for future generations.
