Seriously, do the bees care?
|Home - but did she find the right hive?|
They fly out fast and high, and they head in the right general direction, then search for the exact food source once they get there. Which flowers are in bloom changes incrementally every day.

David wanted a design that would be recognizable from a distance and hopefully bring a smile to people's faces as they pass it. The bees will be seen by many, but just a glimpse each.
Because there is little time to view, he wanted a pattern that would accentuate the boxy shape of the hives, not obscure it. The eye may register "art" or it may register "condo". A split second later, the brain should sort it out "too small for a condo - what lives in boxes? Bees! I didn't know there was a beekeeper here!"
As they move on with their day, perhaps they will remember our colorful hives and take a moment to wish the bees well in their endeavors.
