About the author

Graham Kingham is a retired mechanical quality engineer who keeps a few hives in Devon. He started looking down the microscope in 2005 at yeast and bacteria in his beer. To further his interest in microscopy and beekeeping he took the British Beekeeping Association microscopy exam and has continued to explore the fascinating world of the honeybee through the lens. His first bee book was dedicated to the male bee, the drone, followed by an anthology about all things bees.
