What a great way to bring in the new year....its gonna be a great day to watch the bees. i just came back from the hive and they are SO busy working.
One silly thing happened i just have to share. Two girls were returning to the hive at the same time. Both in that clover leaf landing pattern but from different directions and just as they both got to within 1 foot of the hive entrance they slammed into each other and fell straight down. I guess they were drunk(F.W.I. Flying While Impaired) on their early winter bounty and as they climbed up the leaves and back onto the landing entrance they staggered around. I saw one girl kind of shake a bit and it looked as she was clearing her head...then she sat there panting for a least a minute then clambered into the hive. I guess i shouldn't have set out that eggnog for them ;-)
They seem so happy to be able to get out and stretch their wings, but some seem to be flying drunk.
Happy New Year!
