    Tomohide Ikeya I was impressed to find such a way to express myself. It's a wonderful way to express the idea of human beings in the cycle of nature. I think I would have used the same image in Angelina Jolie. This is definitely one of the best works of the year.

Asger Søgaard, is a beekeeping consultant, former director of the Danish Beekeepers Association, past president of Apimondia, the international federation of national beekeepers associations. Bees and beekeeping have been a part of human culture for thousands of years.
