The Honey Nights. The honey comb is cut cleanly. The honey harvester leaves a bit of honey on the comb, as well as the pollen and the brood. In the day, most of the bees chased away during the harvest return to their comb. If the flowers continue to blossom, they bring honey back to the comb again and the collectors will return a week later to again harvest the honey. This semi-domestication is an ingenious means of countering the natural instinct of the giant bees, which migrate over several hundred kilometers each year and easily change nests. Borneo, Indonesia
