drawing of bees in a hive

I’m just starting out my blog with some old Illustration Friday pictures. This is from when the topic was ‘wax’ a few weeks ago.

Aren’t bees amazing? Did you know that worker bees have different jobs depending on their age? They apparently make the best wax at around 16-18 days of age. I learned that here along with lots of other bee facts. 🙂 Foraging is the last job they do. The bees we see the most are old ladies.
