The colony grew in my body all that summer. The gaps between my bones filled with honeycomb and my chest vibrated and hummed. I knew the brood was healthy, because the pheromones sang through the hive and the queen laid a good two thousand eggs a day. I smelled of bee bread and royal jelly, my nails shone with propolis. I spent my days freeing bees from my hair, and planting clover and bee sage and woundwort and teasel and borage. I was a queendom unto myself. ~Jo Shapcott . . . . . . . . #insect #macro #nature #insects #macrophotography #naturephotography #insectphotography #insectsofinstagram #photography #butterfly #wildlife #bug #entomology #bugs #naturelovers #perfection #world #of #photooftheday #flowers #animals #captures #animal #our #love #bee #art #wildlifephotography #macroworld #bhfyp
