The flowers were blooming on the peach trees the first time I went out to photograph bees.
After being told what I would need to do and where I would need to stand I was told to change into something white.
But why? I asked.
“Because you’re wearing black jeans and a dark sweater. To the bees you look like a polecat, a bear – something come to steal the honey,” was his reply.
How odd, I thought – that bees would practice profiling.
Thanks for leaving this story, Becky!
