It's the time of year when orchards are buzzing with activity.

And we don't just mean people looking for beautiful flowers or tasty apples.

Honeybees are out pollenating the flowers. And some places have to bring them in to get the job done.

News 8's Chief Photographer Chuck Oedsma takes us to Van Lin Apple Orchard in La Crescent in this week's Eye Piece.

Every Friday on News 8 at 6, we’ll feature a photo essay from our talented photographers.
