Saudi bee

Note the thorns in the background.  Isn’t that always the way?

What time they fed on honey fresh, food of the gods devine
The holy madness made their hearts to speak the truth incline.
But if from food of honeycomb they needs must keep aloof,
Confused they buzz among themselves and speak no word of sooth
—Homer (see here and here)
