Default The Bees Have It!

I'm impressed and a little humbled in the process.

I just bought a very large jar of honey that had a tag with information about how bees gather nectar for the honey that we eat.

This from a local small company:

"In order to gather nectar for a single pound of honey, bees make 50,000-75,000 trips to the hive, averaging 1 to 1 1/2 miles each-a distance equal to three times around the earth."
