Brooklyn Bees Produce Red Honey

Thanks to Michele Widera of the Salt Lake City Library for bringing to my attention an article in the New York Times about bees that mysteriously produce red honey.  You can read the article by clicking on this link, BeesinBrooklyn.  Bees are industrious creatures but as the article makes clear, they are opportunists.  I find it particularly amusing that the woman beekeeper from New York featured in the story is named Cerise, translation – cherry, in French.

Thanks to Lou Melini for pointing out a related article in The Atlantic.   The article gives a different take on the same phenomenon with some interesting anecdotes.
