Every so often in summer, and more often as fall comes upon us, I find a dead or dying honeybee or bumblebee. If it still lives at all, I offer a drop of restorative honey on my fingertip, hoping it will revive and find shelter to survive. But of course, that doesn’t always work. Honeybees actually have a finite amount of honey they can digest, you see? So if the bee I attempt to feed is “there” the honey can do it no good. But of course, bees face greater threats than their own set date with death via starvation. And now an artist uses those little golden bodies to make heart-breaking art.
