By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world

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.

Eh? Thats not porn - its nature. Reproduction is a natural act.  We are beekeepers and that shot is of amazing value in so much as it's an almost never seen part (and hence limited knowledge) of beekeeping.

I just say, as a male myself, that you can skip the next few frames where the drones abdomen explodes as he falls to the ground; dead.
