Honeycomb in the Field (Avondale, AZ)
Out in the fields, the farmers let beekeepers set up their boxes of honey bees along the fields so they help pollinate the crops.  Once that crop is harvested, the beekeepers come in and move their hives to the a new field, a new crop.  It is a symbiotic working relationship for the bees and the crops, for the farmers and the beekeepers.
They must have just moved some hives and left some honeycomb behind.  I ran across it in a couple spots today and it was adjacent to crops that had just been replanted or harvested.  
I saw some rabbits but no Easter Eggs.
Tomorrow when I have my almond butter drizzled with honey on my toast for breakfast, I will think of the bees and the fields and how much goes into the delivery of these magnificent foods.
