Caption: Beekeeping, 19th-century artwork. Beekeeper extracting honey from honeycombs obtained from a beehive. Bees collect nectar from a wide range of flowering plants, bringing it back to their hive to store it and form honey. The honey is used as food by bee larva, and is also collected by beekeepers for human consumption. The most commonly domesticated bee is the common honey bee (Apis mellifera). Artwork from the 20th volume (second period of 1897) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
