  1. Glad you used this! I thought the photos were really amazing. Who could have imagined that honey would be so difficult to get?

    • Sure, thank you for sharing! Once in a while I do manage to post such fascinating bits collected from friends and my own media “travels.”
      Here’s the link, posted recently which provides more background….An excerpt follows:
      Taking place twice a year since 13 000 BC, honey harvesting is a difficult mission, which can only be completed in alliance of villagers of Nepal, also known as Honey Hunters. An exciting journey to Apis laboriosa, the biggest honeybee in the world is a subsistence for some of the local people in Himalayas.
