I got to shoot a lot of bees this summer for our friends @beesponsible. It took some practice, and I got an enormous number of out-of-focus bees. But, you get some sweet ones, too. Here are several faves 🐝 #beesponsible#bees#honey#kansas
Honeybees take social skills to a whole new level. In fact, they’re considered highly social bees since the mother and all her daughters live together, splitting the nest maintenance and reproductive duties. 🐝🐝🐝 How do they do it all so successfully? By exchanging information with each other using touch, sound, taste and — our favorite — waggle dancing! Read the @hobbyfarmsmag link in bio to learn more about their amazing communication skills.
Glyphosate doesn't just kill weeds — it disorients and confuses bees. 😢🐝 You might not be familiar with this herbicide by name, but it's the active ingredient in one of the most popular weed killers in the U.S. ☠ Please inspect labels as you do fall lawn and garden work to make sure this chemical stays out of our environment. 🚫 #dontkillmybuzz#beesponsible#chemicalfree#pesticidefree#gardeningtips
Does it make me old or nerdy when I get excited to get honey in the mail? Best part was, I won them! Who knows guys, maybe one day I’ll add beekeeper to my list of Shit Imma Try Someday. 🐝 #beesponsible
My first honey harvest! This was just one super (the smaller sized box on the top of the hive) there are still two more to harvest. Hook me up with a jar and I’ll get some honey headed your way. This stuff is super sweet! #medicine#rawandunfiltered#beesponsible#thanksbees
Last month, our city declared August 18 as Save the Bees Day! This was a direct result of the proclamation request we submitted to our mayor's office, which you can find on our website to send to your own city officials (#linkinbio). We celebrated with some extra festivities at our local farmers' market and enjoyed seeing all the bee love from the community. 💛🐝 Catch the full recap in our highlights at the top of our profile. ⠀ ⠀ #beesponsible#savethebees#beetheirbff#beethechange#wichitaks#tbt#throwbackthursday
