"Macadamia Buzz" Giclee
Walking through my macadamia orchard during flowering season, hearing the humming buzz of thousands of honeybees gathering nectar to deliver to their hives is one of my favorite seasonal experiences. This original woodcut print captures the muted atmosphere of the orchard with the Pueo as quiet sentinel. Pueo is the Hawaiian native owl that hunts and nests in a variety of ecosystems ranging from forests to grasslands
The life of honeybees is depicted in the hive with the female workers attending the large queen alongside the larvae growing inside the cells. The male drone's purpose is to mate with the queen once, which ends his life. Until that fateful moment he can often be found in the hive, but the worker bees will force him to leave if resources get low.
Part of the Hawaiian Honeybee Woodcut Print Series designed exclusively for Big Island Bees by award-winning artist Andrea Pro.
