Detail photo of a dense cluster of honeybees at work Wednesday morning, October 8, 2014 in the new six foot tall, two foot wide observation beehive in the front wall of Bert's Bees, at 210 West Pettigrew Street, Durham with up to 15,000 honeybees embedded in six frames in the front wall of the business. The largest observation beehive of its kind in NC was installed this week on the American Tobacco Campus to help educate the public on the importance of the bees to our human and environmental health. The hive is two sided - the bees at work can also be seen while inside the lobby of Burt's Bees.
