Buzzing in the sunshine

An Easter bank holiday and unusually we had lots of sun, so the bees have been busy. All our hives had activity so they have all survived the winter. Notice the bees in the photos bringing in yellow sacks of pollen on their rear legs. The pollen is fed to the bee larvae. Hopefully that means the queens are laying again, replenishing bee numbers. And soon the hives will start producing queen cells. That means the swarming season is not long off.

I wonder how is it painful to sting by a bee

I like seeing bees in person, I hope I could visit a farm that does have this
