The Beautiful Bees

June 12th, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized

Mother Nature presented us with a wondrous event during the past few days. 

We were privileged to witness the return of the honey bees. Their queen took up residence in a random arborvitae (thuja) shrub in our work parking lot. The resulting attendance of her protectors, thousands of drone and worker bees, produced an amazing four foot long colony. 

We watched with admiration when the beekeeper arrived and proceeded to calmy and smoothly move the colony to a more advantageous location. Here are a few peeks of the group:

 

The colony

 

Amazing!

 

Up close: can you see the transparent wings?
