Master beekeeper, Robin Theron, and The Ebeling Group assembled as many as 80.000bees to create a bottle and a bust of honey, made by bees.
The project was Dewar’s latest promotion of their new Highlander Honey whiskey.
Bees build their honeycomb inwards, and given an inverse scaffolding on which they could build, several colonies finished building after about 6 weeks.

The circle of life makes for some dramatic photos, from some fantastic photographers...
"The Manpupuner rock formations (Man-Pupu-Nyer; Мань-Пупу-нёр) or the Seven Strong Men Rock Formations or Poles of the Komi Republic are a set of 7 gigantic abnormally shaped stone pillars located north of the Ural mountains in the Troitsko-Pechorsky District of the Komi Republic. These monoliths are around 30 to 42 m high and jut out of a hilly plateau formed through the weathering effects of ice and winds."
"According to a local legend, the stone pillars were once an entourage of Samoyeds giants walking through the mountains to Siberia in order to destroy the Vogulsky people. However, upon seeing the holy Vogulsky mountains, the shaman of the giants dropped his drum and the entire team froze into the stone pillars."
