Architect, winged apothecary, and the ultimate pollinator, the honeybee is an alchemist that transmutes nectar into golden honey. Throughout history, humans have utilized and mythologized this wondrous creature. Melding art and science through a scanning electron microscope (SEM), photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher reveals the majesty of these fascinating insects and a realm of intricate structure, design, and pattern unknown to us. Through one little bee at the Museum of Science we get a glimpse of nature's complexity - the worlds within worlds comprising our reality.
