Bees in flight

May 13, 2013
Bees fly in and out of the hive in the back yard of Quentin Williams' Snohomish home on May 5, 2013. Williams, the manger of Beez Neez, has six hives with two breeds of bees. A federal report suggests that parasites, malnutrition and pesticide exposure are behind the decline in the colonies nationwide. (NICK ADAMS/The Herald)
