But the reason for this post is to show you this.....I was pulling frames yesterday, getting ready to extract honey, and right after I pulled a couple of frames, the hive I was working in started swarming. Look at the little dots flying all around me.
I grabbed my camera and started snapping pics, but it's hard to see what you are taking pictures of with a bee hat and veil on and it's hard to push the picture button with bee gloves on. I managed a few.
Very amazing to be in the middle of this. I don't think I've ever been in the center of a swarm in the ten years that I've been beekeeping.
Not one sting either....as I've said before, honeybees tend to be gentle while swarming.
