    Honeybees travel 3 miles out and 3 miles back to their hives each day foraging for flowers. In Venice where I have my 8 honeybee colonies since 2013, I noticed them riding on the vaporetto with me when I travel to Murano. I realized that the distances are too far for them to fly without resting and the Laguna di Venezia is a large body of water. Honeybees can do a lot of things including dancing, but they do not swim. The vaporettos are reliable and no one bothers them as they ride outdoors. I have video taped them, photographed them and followed them to the very sites I painted in this book. This is a 100% true story.
