When I was a young lad I found a book about bee keeping at a garage sale and read it. I became fascinated with bees, but didn't have the tools, cash, or know-how to start a hive of my own. This week I've started two new hives, released the queens from their prisons, and have fed them delicious sugar syrup. Now all I have to do is make sure they have enough feed until the flower get started, and they have some boxes to expand into later on. The last couple of days I've been sneaking out of the house to watch them fly in and out of the hive. What an awesome creature I took a few pictures of them, this is the best shot I got right now.
