Good sight to see

The weatherman said we could have frost last night. Honeybees like warm weather. When the weather is warm, then cold, then warm, then cold, they can collect much nectar and pollen.

I fretted last night. This morning the sun came out in all its glory. I put on my bee suit, grabbed my camera, and went to the hives.

I'd only been there a few minutes when I started seeing this. This is a honeybee forager coming back to the hive with so much pollen on their legs they could barely fly.

This was good sight to see.


  1. I love honeybees and I am glad yours are doing well. I hope Jilda had a wonderful Sunday/Mother's Day. xo Diana

  2. An EXCELLENT sight to see. And share.

  3. Looking forward to summer and seeing their results!

  4. What a great picture, I have never seen one like that. Amazing you caught it. SWEET for sure.

  5. A great picture and what a glutton...hahahaaa. I am so happy you have honeybees

  6. I had no idea they could get “too much nectar and pollen’. This was a great shot and very interesting. I never thought about how they carried pollen back to the hive. Now I know. How cool is that?

  7. Looks like all your hard work will be paying off. I love to see those busy bees. It would be a sight to see. thanks for sharing the pictures with us that don't have bees to watch.

  8. Someone I know decided to raise bees recently. I am anxious to see if he does as well as you have done.

  9. We've had snow this week and I wonder how the bee keepers up here are doing. I love that pic. So fascinating!
