You can’t really make yourself like anything, including honey. I say, just accept your distaste for honey as the way it is 🙂

Faelan! I'm drawing a character who has honey bee-type wings, is there anything I specifically need to know about their structure?

Yes! Bees have two pairs of wings which is very important. If you only give them one pair they’re actually diptera like flies. 

The veins of the wings are also very important because they provide ventilation and blood flow and the bottom edge of the forewing and the top of the hindwing have hooks.

The wings also don’t move on their own as they aren’t muscle, the wings move by muscles inside the bee (as you can see below at B), as they contract the wings move down, and as they expand the wings move up.

Ok like I'm amazed I love your blog!!! My job has a lot to do with letting people know about bees at risk and what they can do to help them!! A cool fact: it's been proven that honey has healing qualities and ever since I was little and got a cold or a minor sickness I would always eat honey, no medicine!!! Its now my go to for when I'm not feeling well!!!

That’s really great! I like to take propolis (bee glue) when I’m sick. It also has a lot of really great qualities 🙂

Fun Facts About Honey

thewannabeee:

– Honey is mostly sugar (WoW!) it is 80% sugar and 20% water (double WoW!)

– There are over 20,000 species of bees, but only 4 make HONEY

-Honey is the ONLY food that contains all the substances you need to survive (Including WATER)

-Children under the age of 1 should not eat honey… why? because sometimes it contains bad stuff called botulism and can cause them to get botulism poisoning (that sucks, even infants should taste the deliciousness that is honey)

-Honey will crystallize under optimum temperatures (this has a lot to do with how you store it)

-Bees produce honey to eat during the winter when there are no flowers and no nectar for them.

-A honeybee would only need an ounce of honey to be able to fuel a flight around the world (this makes for a very cultural bee!)

-A typical beehive can make up to 400 pounds of honey a year! (Wowza!)
