A close-up of some bees hanging off the bottom of a frame last week:
Look at the bee just right of the middle doing the splits. Ouch. I suppose this behaviour is a variation of festooning.
PHOTO NOTE (SEPTEMBER 2015): The photo in this post may not display properly because it was uploaded through Google’s Picasa online photo album service, a service I no longer use because certain updates created more work for me instead of streamlining the process. I will eventually replace the photo with one hosted on the Mud Songs server. This note will disappear when (or if) that happens.
