Busy as Bees

Jon took a really great picture of the bees yesterday, and my computer ate it. Sadness. We’ll just have to look at a picture of last year’s bees.

The hive looks strong. Lots of bees, lots of honey. Andrew and I flipped the entrance reducer to help alleviate traffic jams and added another super to assure the bees they have lots of room to expand and don’t need to consider swarming.

I sat at the entrance for a while today watching bees arrive, big yellow circles of pollen tucked into their bodies, legs stuck down like landing gear. I imagine their feet ache, their wings tire. But I suppose I may be projecting.
