Everyone knows that honey bees are an essential part of our world and that actions are
being taken to protect them, but how much do we know about their actual lives? I n
QueenSpotting, beekeeper and swarm catcher Hilary Kearney shines a light on the inner
workings of the hive, with a focus on the remarkable life of the queen bee, who is the key
to the birth and life of the whole colony.

Full of enthralling first-person accounts and photographs of Kearney’s beekeeping
adventures, QueenSpotting guides us through the honey bee’s fragrant, golden world
and its mysterious, matriarchal, and highly functional society. Looking closely at
happenings inside the hive — from The Virgin Death Match to the Exodus of the Swarm
— readers learn what sets bee royalty apart from the workers and drones. Armed with
new knowledge, they are then invited to test their queenspotting skills with 48 fold-out
photographic challenges depicting the queen hidden among the hive’s many inhabitants.
Drawing attention to the drama and beauty of bees and their queens, QueenSpotting
is set to create a swarm of new bee lovers while helping bee enthusiasts be tter
understand the world at the center of every beehive.
