Dad, two seconds before being stung

Me examining the brood

Smoking the bees

Brood comb, with the occasional pocket of bee bread (combination of nectar and pollen)
that's the darker hexagons you see.

Queen, (she's the one with the yellow dot)

  1. I am so amazed at how little I knew about honeybees, ie yellow dot on the queen to differentiate.(I always thought she wore a crown.:):)

    Hope Dad ok.
