Beekeeper Amanda Dowd smokes her bees in preparation for transhumance while a helper looks on, Seranon, Alpes Maritimes, France, 18 February 2014. After a summer and winter in the mountains, she will move her 12 hives back down to a valley near her home on the French Riviera where the bees can take advantage of the spring flowers already in bloom at lower altitudes, before the Asian hornets hatch out in early summer and start preying on her honeybees.
