I’m a West Virginia beekeeper, and my love for bees continues to grow the more I work with them.  As a nature photographer, I want to share my enthusiasm for my small backyard hobby through pictures.  I know…bees sting!  But what I have learned in my first year of beekeeping far out weighs the occasional sting.  Honest!  Now in my second year, I’m excited to share the joys these bees have given me.  Please understand I am in no way an expert in bees, but my love for these little fuzzy ladies is true.  I’d like to share with you what I did in my first year, as well as keep you informed as year two continues to develop.
