Hunting for Honey Bees

There’s not much to see here but I’ll show it to you anyway. It’s a raw video of me walking through the field behind our shed looking for honey bees on dandelions. The field fills with a variety of wild flowers during the summer and fall. I might explore it again later on in the season when there’s more to see. (Note: The video contains some brief G-rated profanity.)

The video demonstrates how difficult it is to get a precise focus on the bee. Looking at an LCD screen in the bright is not ideal. I might manually lock the focus next time and attach a stick to the camera so I can physically see where focused area ends. Anyway, it’s been cold for the past week and the bees have been stuck in their hives. Sunnier skies and warmer temperatures are supposedly on the way. I hope so. We only have four months of the year that aren’t cold, wet and windy (that is, they’re not as cold, wet and windy as the other eight months). I’m ready to make the most of it. I think the bees are too. Come on summer, let’s get on with it!
