I love watching the hive from the house in the late afternoon. The sun is not quite below the tree line and is shining through the mass of bees going in and out as they take advantage of the last couple of hours of daylight. The sunshine catches on their wings and makes them looks like drops of gold darting through the air. Here’s a short video Hial took this afternoon.
Tomorrow morning I’m adding a second honey super and doing a quick check of the first super to see if they’ve filled the cells that had brood two weeks ago.
