I inspected Hive #2 today. The bees were so docile, I think I could have gone without any protective clothing. I took off my gloves afterwards and took this photo:
The bees were bringing in pollen of every colour and crawling all over me after I took off my gloves. I keep saying this because it’s true: I’m so happy they’re docile. Or maybe I’ve become more docile. I had bees crawling up the sleeves of my shirt. I reached in and brushed them away. No stings yet.
I’ll post a video of the hive inspection if it’s any different than last week’s inspection.
P.S.: Just kidding about going without protective clothing. The bees played nice, but they would have been all over my head and in my hair if I hadn’t been wearing a hat and veil. Check out the video in the next post.
