Re: Where does beeswax come from?
Unless a person or company has a gaggle of lawyers standing by he/she should consider photos or anything else they post on the internet to be public domain or at least "free for the grabbing". I know it isn't, but the present culture/mindset is that if a person can get something off of their computer (connected to the internet) then they can do with it as they want. I don't think many people intentionally take an internet work from someone and somehow use it as their own or degrade it in some way, but a type of culture or mentality has slowly crept upon society in a way that they don't think of the person behind the person that took the photo or created the document...they simply look at the photo or whatever as being something filed in a very, very, large depository of information (the internet) that they can freely draw from.

That is a nice photo that Debbe Krape took of the wax producing bee!!! I had my ideas of how this would look, but I had no idea that they would produce so many scales at once!!! Very neat!!!
I haven't frequented www.honeybeesuite.com in the past, but after seeing this photo here on beesource I went there and looked around. Nice picture of the robber fly and dragonfly, Rusty!! So, the picture of the wax producing bee arrived on beesource,..and I saw it. I then went to Honey Bee Suite and looked around...will probably return to the site and explore more...maybe keep it on my radar to check for updates...did anyone benefit from me seeing the picture here?
