Bee Beards

Who knew there was such a thing as a bee beard!

Some honey vendors round about 1830s started sporting “bee beards” to draw attention to their honey and bee products. Honey beards are made by holding a caged queen bee beneath the chin this allows the bees to cluster across the face. This is still fashionable to date and there is a competition held in Ontario, Canada, each year to create the most impressive bee beard.
Not sure if i would like to do that but certainly interesting and brave of those who do this.
