Just look at the delicate wings of this beautiful fluffy bumble bee. They are a delicate, exquisite work of art in their own right aren’t they? Their wings may look fragile, but that doesn’t mean they’re not strong. Did you know one bee has to fly about 90,000 miles – three times around the globe – to make one pound of honey. The average bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip. A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour.
