In the latest issue of Hue, Nick Parisse, Photography and the Digital Image ’09, takes readers on a tour of his beehive. Flip through the issue online here; the bee feature appears on page 14-15.
Hue got up close and personal with the bees over the summer. Check out this video by Alex Joseph, Hue‘s managing editor, as, bare-handed (!!), he goes “into the hive” with Parisse. Note: Turn up the volume on your speakers to hear dialogue at the beginning.)
Watch as, at approximately 1:30, Parisse taps 30 bees onto his bare hand. And, at about 2:50, a special appearance by the queen bee herself!embedded by Embedded Video
Lexi Parisse, Fashion Design ’09, who owns her own green fiber business, can also be glimpsed, standing at a safe remove.
And here’s a mesmerizing closeup video of Nick’s bees. The queen has a yellow dot painted on her back.embedded by Embedded Video
These bees are amazing creatures, but Hue will probably wait in the car next time.
