National Geographic : 1964 May
Gathering wild honey, an Erigbaagtsa chops into an ax-felled tree to remove a bees' nest. Angry insects, driven out by the blazing fire, beset his companion. The bees, of the genus Meli pona, lack poison stingers but inflict painful bites. Grimacing from bee bites, a woman ladles wild honey into a bamboo pipe. She obtained the metal cup from rubber tappers. Baby girl, clutching honeycomb and wearing a necklace given to her by the author, shields her face from the darting bees. Youngster packs honeycomb in a leaf basket laced with fiber.
