Gorgeous day!

It's about 50 degrees out, so the bees have been out getting some exercise in the sun.
They were really active! But not too perturbed about my hanging out with them. A few landed on my hands, but flew away when I blew on them gently.
I remembered to put a hat on. They can get caught in your hair really easily. In the ensuing panic (theirs or yours), you're more likely to get stung. Cover your hair, and nobody gets hurt.


  1. You're becoming quite the bee expert and handler. Or should we call you the bee whisperer?

  2. Far from expert! Just barely scratching the surface of what there is to know.

    Happily, one of the first things you learn is how gentle most bees are.
