SKIVE IN A HIVE
Taken during a quick break while teaching a workshop for Light and Land with Doug Chinnery at Kew Gardens. The newly opened hive encapsulates the story of the honey bee. Although the structure itself is undeniably fascinating, what captured my interest here was the balloons inside the hive, specifically the way the light fell on them. Further research revealed that honeybees rely on a pattern of polarised light in the sky - invisible to humans - to direct one another to a honey source.
