I love macro photography, and finally I have got myself a ring blitz which has been on my wish list for some time now. A couple of days ago, I made the first real use of it while doing an inspection.  The bees were in a very good mood, and I had a great time making photographies of my dear friends.

Nope.  I designed my TBH so that I could use regular frames under the bars for easier startupå of the hive.  That meant that the bars becahe very large, and the hive became unmanageble.  In other words: I chose a bad design.  It would have been fun to try again, but the hives here needs insulation, and it was a bit job to make the first, so I doubt I will try again in a while.  But it was a fun project, though smiley
