    This is my rendition of the confederate soldier from Tom Wolfe's book "Carving Out The Civil War" I did this one a while ago. Maybe I'll get around to doing more of the characters on of these days.

    Wow. Nicely done! The proportions are spot on and the posture makes it more believable. Nice job!

    We run up to about 1800 hives on the southern end of the operation, and about that many again on the northern end of the operation too. North Dakota over the summer is about 6000 hives of owned and leased bees on the clover.

    Great photos. I currently have just 4 hives. Have had as many as 12. I do sell some honey and make beeswax candles. If you know of sources for reasonably priced wax, let me know.

    Shipping is the killer there in large quantities! Quick Google search says you have a Massachusetts Beekeeper's Association and a Northern Berkshire Beekeepers Association, have you put the word out you're looking? You might have someone nearby sitting on a few extra pounds. I do sell to the guys here at a price well below most internet prices.
