|I was sixteen, I had just been given
a microscope, so it seemed the obvious thing that I
should include it in my holiday luggage that year.
Luckily for me, the relatives I was staying with were
keen bee keepers, so I had plenty of "subjects"
for my new acquisition. That's when my interest in bees
started. Now, thirty years on, having studied biology and
later, maths, that fascination has continued and
developed. Using photographs of slides I either made or
was given at the time together with some facts I have
gleaned over the years, I hope to demonstrate how bees
can fit into microscopy and maths!
