I enjoy trying to photograph the bees in flight. It’s not easy.
Both hives went wild about an hour after I added the inverted jar feeders today and the temperature went up to about 10°C. It’s the thickest I’ve seen the bees this year. I’ll post a video as soon as I can. In the meantime, here’s the slideshow:
I’m not saying they’re great photos, but it was fun trying to capture the bees in flight. They were so thick, they were landing all over the camera, my face, my hands, everything. I only get alarmed, though, when I feel one burrowing through my hair. That’s when I get up and flick them off my head.
