Honeybees!

 

Yesterday our new top bar hive with established honeybee colony was finally delivered (after a delay due to the extremely hot conditions earlier in the week.)  We’ve had a great time watching them through the glass viewing windows on the side of the hive, as well as seeing them pollinating flowers in the yard.  When they return to the hive, their route is over the top of the house, down into the yard, make a hard right past the bird feeder pole, and back into the hive entrance.  It’s very interesting to see them all follow this same flightpath.

    Its like a bee superhighway. If you stand in front of them, they will run into you and then fly around you….not sure if they are able to give a rude gesture but….
