Buzz: The Nature and Necessity of Bees by Thor Hanson
Buzz is a book for the nature minded and science minded alike. It is an informative and humorous foray into the world of bees as well as their close cousins and look alikes. The language and writing that Hanson uses is scientific but with a naturalist outlook, making for an enjoyable and personable read. Hanson clearly has a love for the subject as well as knowledge and is also willing to share some personal experiences in both the scientific field of entomology as well as his own personal nature experiences with his own family exploring nature trails. Overall a great read.
