Sara Mapelli, an artist and energy therapist, is also known as the Bee Queen. Based in Oregon, Mapelli performs a special dance while topless, only wearing a "blouse" made from thousands of buzzing honeybees.
"As I got to know bees, I realized their world is all about community," Mapelli told National Geographic. "Each bee has a job, and they take turns doing different things to help the whole. That interconnectedness, the idea that if you take a piece out the group is incomplete and doesn't function as well - that's part of the message I want to share."
