Honey Bees are incredible!

Linda  inspects her hives very frequently, especially since there has been a local outbreak of 'foul brood': at this time of year the result is usually a few pounds of delicious honey. Yesterday she left a couple of 'cleaned' frames on the garden table to dry out in the sun: within seconds the first bees had found them, and within minutes there were hundreds looking for a quick feed! It is truly astonishing to watch these industrious little creatures at close range. (Needless to say, the frames were moved away from the house until after sunset, when - the bees having 'gone to bed' - Linda could bring them indoors!)
