Bee hotel

This is a hotel. For bees – wild bees. In Paris, France.

Bee hotel in Paris

As you can imagine, it's a bit tough for bees to find natural habitats in the city. This hotel, with multiple "rooms" and different holes in pieces of wood, was therefore designed for different species of bees. Wild bees rarely sting – their venom is mostly innocuous; as in the case of mosquitoes, only females sting :).
