Dead Bees

Hive Collapse Disorder
We are looking at an unprecedented death of bees.  It is estimated that 1/3 of this nation’s bees are gone.  Add in the fact that 1/3 of our food supply is touched by a bee, and we have a real crisis in the making.  Pesticides (Monsanto), mono-agriculture and cellphones –  electronic smog – are all thought to be causes but no one knows for sure yet. Vermont does not experience hive collapse yet.
I am a photographer and,  just this summer,  a beekeeper.  This is a first series of photos exploring dead bees.
