About this Article
Duane Marski has seen bees up close behind the lens of a camera and witnessed things most have not. Ask the photographer and volunteer beekeeper about the insects, and he'll list off facts about their length, speed of flight, their anatomy and go into detail about the process of making honey. "I call them Swiss Army insects," Marski said. Marski hopes to share his wealth of knowledge at the first National Honey Bee Day celebrations at Kline Creek Farm in West Chicago from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, August 18.
