The design thread in the members’ section involving bees prompted this thought.  I’m sure the basic concept has been done before, although I don’t recall ever seeing it.

Vert honeycombed Or in each cell a goutte de miel.

According to Wikipedia’s page on field variations, the town of Viļāni, Latvia, has a chief honeycombed and the arms in the seal of Fusagasug√°, Cundinamarca, Colombia, have a honeycombed 4th quarter. Neither, however, is as excellently done as this, either in concept or execution.

I like this.  I’d love to see the vert replaced with sable.

What a wonderful cant on Honeycutt, Combe, etc…!

That looks very nice.  Busy as a bee, but nice.

I wish I’d thought of that distinctive old Southern name of Honeycutt/Hunnicutt.  You’re right, it would be appropriate.

Oh, Yeah!  That is very easy on the eyes.  Of the two, I think this is the better.

Nice!!

For Hunneycut or variant spellings, perhaps add a (skinny) pile Sable?

Excellent design, now to find a willing victim to assume it. smile
