I've been doing so much reading while I have been away for my neice's wedding. Interesting stuff. Keep reading about when bees are guarding, they usually don't bother things that are not moving. Mark Winston's book, The Biology of the Honey Bee is the one I have been attacking :-D. He contends that one should stand still, don't move, and the bees are not as aggressive, it is motion that they go after.
And, remember, John was talking about that too in a post a few days ago. That must be why they say when one works with the bees, to do things slowly, no fast motions, gotta be some kind of truth to that.
That is how I try (and sometimes I know I want to run) to work always with the bees. So slowly, deliberate actions. I know for a very fact that I could not outrun a bee.
This is a great thread, some interesting little ditties from everyone, have a wonderful day, great life. I am home and off to some serious adventures around my yard with my camera, its gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiney day. Cindi
