It’s time for a bee hive update. If anybody reading this lives nearby, I would really encourage you to come over and see it for yourself. It is soooo hard to get a good picture with the camera (terrible glare), but it’s crystal clear in person.
And, from the other window, you can see a cross comb (parallel to the window instead of perpendicular like these combs) right up against the length of half of the window. You can see the bees depositing nectar into the comb, pollen on the legs of the pollen gatherers, and you can see the wiggle dance that tells the other bees where to find great forage. Unfortunately, I have yet to get a good picture from that side with the camera. It’s just impossible (for me) to get the camera to focus on the inside of the hive instead of the surface of the plexiglass.
These bees are pretty darn cool if you ask me =)
