it was hot today, and i was in a hurry, and so i didn't bother with the beesuit. Just wore jeans and a long sleeved white tee shirt turned inside out so the black screenprint on it wouldn't show. Did wear the helmet and veil and rose gloves. Didn't bother lighting the smoker. didn't get stung, and only one little honeybee even seemed annoyed at my continuing to screw with the frames. maybe the beekeeper that told me he works in shorts, and a veil, no shirt even, isn't quite as crazy as i thought... was i just paranoid about getting stung? are you all out there getting great tans while you play with your hives?
