The third Saturday in August is National Honey Bee Day.
The observance is to bring awareness to the importance that the honey bee has in our food chain.
Here honey bees are taking advantage of a slowly leaking water pipe.
I took this picture of bee hives at Geshur in Israel. Remember, it was know as the land that was Flowing with Honey.
I have been to quite a few hotels in Europe where they will have honeycomb available at the breakfast buffets. Not something you will see too often here in the US. You will be lucky if you even have honey available for breakfast.
Remember as you are eating fruits, vegetables and nuts that there is a good chance that they are pollinated by bees. Not all plants require pollination by bees, but the majority do.
