ALL the bees you can see in this photogalleries are Carniolans. other bees are prohibited in Slovenia, since this breed originates from here, kind of a protecting law, good in my opinion. only the pictures of Frank iz kanade
(franc from canada) might be of a different breed
a week ago, we went on a trip to hungary and they told us about their ways of beekeeping, so one beekeeper told this funny thing :We beekeep with carniolans and we managed to make a breed that is very calm, easy to work with
. very funny to me since one of the main attributes of carniolan is it's unagressivness.
yep, that drone died with a smile on it's face
