For a long time, the secrets of the hive were kept from man by the guardian bees' sting. The experience of opening a beehive is a trip for all the senses. The feel of the frames and bees, the odors of honey and wax, the search for the queen, observing the brood, the humming of the hive and the taste of honey: it instills a reverence in the onlooker. Awareness of one's actions, fluid motions and cold blood are necessary to make this experience a source of pleasure. And a true celebration of life.
