What do you love about bees?

I love how cute and fuzzy they are, but I'm constantly fascinated how thousands of individual organisms work flawlessly in concert to act as one amazing super organism.

If I wasn't so good at my job I would be...

Hiking, playing disc golf, and spending more time in my garden.
