Honey Bee Hobbyist: The Care and Keeping of Bees

Freckles II
Dr. Norman Gary, a recognized expert in beekeeping, has written a book called Honey Bee Hobbyist: The Care and Keeping of Bees. Don't let the title fool you: Dr. Gary has over 30 years experience as a beekeeper so there's something in the book for everyone, even established beekeepers and it's well written, organized, and easy to understand. If you're looking to get into beekeeping then this is the very first reference you should get -and it may well be the only one you need!

The book is filled with some excellent macro and closeup images as well (I was one of the photographers who contributed photos).

You can order it from Amazon -and for the record I make no money from that link.

dalantech, i was at your DA site... it wouldn't let me leave a comment without signing up, but i wanted to tell you this:

i think this (crown of dew) is without doubt one of the most amazing photographs i have ever seen.

your work is just beautiful. i can't imagine the patience and skill you must have... and i can't imagine a finer portrait artist for the miniature world.

you make me want to be very, very small, so that i can see the world this way :-)
