I didn't take the picture myself. While doing research for a Magazine article I'm writeing I ran across this picture taken for a PBS documentry did in 1998. They found a drone stageing area and built a tall tower to get as high as the drones and waited.
Yes I was surprized to learn that drones have stageing areas where they wait for virgin queens. Then this morning I finally got to the place in Longstroths book the hive and the honey bee where it tells about them. Amazing I have read 4 beekeeping books a couple twice and I had to find this fact in one published in 1858.
