Honey Bees



Yesterday, I did something pretty cool. I spent a good chunk of the afternoon watching some honey bees hard at work. My Father-in-law recently took up the hobby of raising his own bees in his backyard and after asking him lots and lots of questions, I suited up and he took me out to see them!

Honey bees are incredible creatures. It's so amazing how they work together and communicate all by instinct. Even though it was crazzzzzy hot in the bee suit, I loved seeing the thousands of bees all buzzing around doing their jobs.

  2. Oh my gosh! That is so neat! It would be so interesting to do something like that, although I think I still may be nervous that they would miraculously find their way into my suit and sting me! haha!

  4. This is soo cool! There is a farmer at our local market and after chatting to him about bees, my friend and I watched a documentary. Now I have such respect for bee keepers. They are doing the world good
