The beekeeper said: 
‘I love bees and they love me.  Although they call me Bee Beard I am rarely stung by my flying friends. 
‘As long as you keep still and don't agitate the bees then all will be well.  They are most gentle creatures really and extremely clever.  They are sensitive to movement so I just keep as still as possible and they like to settle on me. 
‘I love bees.  They are my life.’
