Another one of my images is being published in National Geographic Young Explorer magazine this January / February.

Got an unrelated question, John. I've been baiting honeybees over broccoli blooms lately using local, unprocessed honey. I find myself wondering it they do the same thing with it--meaning, does it contribute to their hive and the colony? Don't want to overdo using bait just to get some images.

@ Kenny: If the honey is from a healthy colony then there shouldn't be any ill effects from using it. Bees steal honey from other hives all the time, and the quantities that you normally use for bate are not going to hurt the bees. From what I've read using corn syrup is more dangerous for them than honey from another hive.
