Beehives on the North York Moors

Sunrise and Beehives, North York Moors, August 2009

Bees in Art artist and curator Andrew Tyzack has taken his honey bees to the North York Moors, with the hope that they gather heather honey. Soon the ling heather (Calluna vulgaris) will be in full bloom, turning the moors into a panorama of beautiful violet. Andrew is a third generation beekeeper and every August he takes his beehives up to the moors. Weather permitting, his bees will fill the supers with honey. In September he'll bring the hives back to his home apiary to harvest the honey. Then he will feed and prepare his bees for winter.
