Main Project Information
Presented By Roy McCollum
Goal What do bees prefer when watering and do they seek out EZ water.
Task Photograph how bees are watering: who, what, when and where?
Where Global, anywhere on the planet
Description

Does the Forth Phase of Water (Exclusion Zone aka EZ water as researched by Dr. Gerald Pollack and many others over the last few decades) provide the best water for honey production and does its properties effect/affect the properties of honey production. Do certain watering conditions invite more bees to water and do they seek out the EZ layer of water at the watering site.

Looking to build a collection of photos that show bees (all species) watering. Photos with location, general conditions (temperature, weather condition, stone or manmade perches, orientation of bees while drinking water, etc.
