Nice pictures Bob, I like #2. I think I would like him to be looking straight in to the lens, it reaveals more of the character within.
Thanks - I am lifting my response from the PCForum:
Visited the Bee Keeper while out yesterday...not much for conversation and although he willingly agreed to allow photos - "Sure" - averted looking directly into lens.
The subject has a road-side stand where he sells honey, folk-art, wooden toys etc.
From what he has said, one former occupation was a brick mason but there isn't enough around today to make it worthwhile so he does not do much of anything. This visit his sitting fee cost me 1lb of shelled pecans and a pint of blue-berry jam.
During the summer and fall, he kept a metal pot by the stand with a swarm of what appeared to be several hundred bees circling in and around the pot. He would demonstrate to those interested the non-aggressive nature of the honey bee by inserting his arm into the middle of the bee-cloud...something to watch but not try at home.
