In New Zealand, honey bees are more like livestock than they are wildlife. Imported in 1839, honey bees were introduced to pollinate exotic crops and produce honey. New Zealand also has 28 native bee species that do pollinate flowers, but do not produce honey.
A BIT ABOUT ME
I took up photography in 2009. I started with a Panasonic Lumix TZ1 and then moved to a TZ7, then a Panasonic FZ100. From there I graduated to a Nikon crop sensor camera, then moved to an Olympus E-M1 mirrorless. After that I went to a Nikon DSLR full frame and later a Sony mirrorless full frame. These days I use a Nikon Z6 mirrorless full frame, along with the Olympus mirrorless E-M1 Mk2, a Panasonic Lumix TZ220 and my OLYMPUS TOUGH TG6. I'm 74 and a typical baby-boomer* 🎂
