Where does beeswax come from?
Is it okay to post a picture I didn't take? I've been rendering wax for beeswax candles this week, and was trying to find a picture to explain to someone exactly how the wax was made, when I found this AMAZING photo at Honey Bee Suite:
From the photographer, Debbe Krape: "I took this photo a couple of years ago with an inexpensive point and shoot camera. The bee was from a recently installed package and was clearly confused about the inside/outside part of the whole deal [the bee was on the outside of the hive]. Nevertheless, I thought it was a cool picture; so for anyone who ever wondered about exactly where the wax glands are, this “butt picture” appears to provide the answer."
