Profile of a NYC Beekeeper

Wending my way around the Internets on this grey and not-so-snowy morn, I came upon a gem by artist Zina Saunders: a portrait of/interview with urban beekeeper David Graves, an individual who will be familiar to anyone who spends time at the Union Square Farmer's Market here in NYC.

If you like this piece, check out the artist's amazing series on Overlooked New Yorkers. This terrific series includes portraits/interviews featuring city knights, subway musicians, bike messengers, rooftop pigeon guys, mushroom hunters, scuba divers, amateur astronomers, and many other fascinating urbanites nurturing cool obsessions.

Are these your girls and boys? Do you have drones flying now?

Drones always crack me up. They have this way of cocking their head, as if to say, "You lookin' at me?

Nothing much is flying now, as the temperatures around my hives are in the teens. The picture is mine, but it's from the fall. I too love and appreciate drones, and always feel a little badly about the bad rap they get in the beekeeping world as "bums." I find them very charming.
