German bees

It's worth noting that the absolute best nature books are invariably written in German, especially anything botanical or mycological, or zoological if the subject is quaint enough, such as beekeeping.

There's a German beekeeping proverb that goes something like this: "If you invite three beekeepers to supper, two of them will be dead by breakfast."

If you're linguistically-equipped for the journey, check out the German Wikipedia beekeeper humor (this stuff is way funnier in the Katzenjammer).
