California Drought Honeybees
In this Wednesday, July 16, 2014 photo, a bee works on a honeycomb the Gene Brandi Apiary in Los Banos, Calif. The state is traditionally one of the country's biggest honey producers, with abundant crops and wildflowers that provide nectar that bees turn into honey. But a three-year drought has left hillsides barren and forced farmers to tear out orchards and leave fields fallow. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
