The Bees Knees. Part Two: My colourful Nuts

My bee hive with honey comb is going to require some really big Bees to compliment those huge honey cells. This piece in progress is inspired by a story I read about a hive of bees local to an M&Ms factory. The bees had apparently been attracted to colourful sugary substances in waste bins at the back of the building. This resulted in the strange colours in the honey comb. Its nuts! isn’t it?

My hive is all ready and waiting for some bees. All of my Insect artworks come from discarded and obsolete computer and electronic gadget components but to realize this piece I may have to resort to buying brand new components. It will have to be called a ‘semi upcycled’ piece maybee? We shall see! What will bee will bee…
Two of the Bees shown here are available in my Etsy shop. Here are the links:
