Jess may have forgotten to tell you that I saved her neck while she inspected the hive this week. A bee got up under her veil and was crawling around on her neck and down her shirt. I actually had to put my camera down and carefully remove it. No stings to report!
There is a lot of interesting stuff going on inside, but for now I’ll just show you a couple photos of baby bees! They were hatching all over the place before our eyes.
Above you can see one baby just poking out right in the middle, and a few more at various stages of getting out around the shot.
And here she is poking her whole head out. I really need a telephoto lens, although there might just be entirely too many bee photos if that happens.
