New Year with Bees Animation

Here's a little animation that I made with my iPad, using the Brushes app.  (The Brushes app captures a stroke-by-stroke video as you draw.)  I created this to use as a greeting for the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah), when we dip apples in honey to symbolize a sweet year. But why bees? Bees have recently landed on the endangered species list.  We can't have honey (or apples or much of anything else) without bees, so this is also a reminder that we need to  "heal the world" (tikkun olam). Sending this out to wish everyone health and happiness and a sweet year ahead.
