"Rare photo of bee sting in action"

They think this may the first time this has ever been photographed, although it has been known for centuries.

Also note the newspaper:  The Sacramento Bee.

I must ask, however, about this sentence:
Garvey has bees in her blood: As dairy farmers, her father and grandfather kept bees to pollinate their orchards. She said bees have been in her family since around 1850.
What does dairy farming have to do with bees?  It would have made more sense to say "as fruit farmers, her father...etc."

Cool photo, anyway.

  1. I'm gonna guess that dairy farming was their primary job, with the orchard being secondary; tho I was ready to argue that for a dairy, they'd need grazing pastures, full of clover, that needed pollenization.
