Artist's Description

Apis florea - the honey produced by these tiny wild bees is highly sought after and may bring as much as $50$100 (US) for a liter jar. These guys live in the window well of my house here in Al Ain City – they move the hive periodically but stay in the same area — I currently have about 3 of these hives around my house here in the UAE.
Frequently people will go through neighborhoods following the little bees to try to find their hives. I have had several folks wanting to cut the hives at my house — they say they leave part of it and the bees will rebuild it, But hey — they built it let them keep it — so they are safe at my house.
