New Bees
« on: April 27, 2008, 08:34:42 PM »
We put in some new bees last week, and took a few snapshots during the inspection this week. Click any to go to the Flickr page.




The new queen.



The last two pictures are from the mature hive, but show a new bee just emerging from the capped cell.

David, very nice, have a beautiful, great day, Cindi
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service

Thanks. Since I'm afraid of getting propolis and honey on the Nikon D200, I usually shoot the bees with the little pocket point & shoot camera. The macro seems to work pretty good.
