An aside:
The things Philately teaches.
From this thread, I learnt about "Skep Hives" they had always intrigued me by design. I wasn't aware they had a name.
Icon for "Industry"
Also used as an Icon for the Chicago Philatelic Society
Oft seen on savings bank stamps.

... and I did not even imagine that a beehive could be anything but a rectangular box!

Cheers,

In conjunction with designer Andrew Perro, these stamps were produced to both celebrate and heighten awareness of Canada's threatened bee population in May, 2018. Featured on the stamps are the endangered rusty-patched bumble bee (Bombus affinus), and the metallic green bee (Agapostemon virescenis). The rusty-patched bumble bee was the first bee species to be assessed as Endangered by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada.

Looking at rod222's post, I'm reminded of why I wear clothes. To protect against bees!

edit: I'm talking about the Aristaeus post, not the earring girl. Although, with Scarlett Johansson, I would risk it.
