Gary, that is one of the coolest pics I've ever seen. Your beard ROCKS!!
The wife snapped this one of me while i was installing packages on 4/4 (a few weeks ago)
me and the bees
me and my daughter sitting by three hives we keep behind the honey house to clean up supers and other boxes we bring in. These bees are very gentle. I guess due to having plenty of honey arounf the honey house.
I don't think that your daughter is as relaxed as you are. Maybe she would have been more comfortable in a beesuit?
sun was in here eyes, she has a suit to where. Both of my Children (son 14) have grown up working the bees. These hives are located beside the honey house, very gentle. Any other bee yard and she would be in a veil and jacket. Will post more pics soon...
It seems that male beeks have a higher percentage of facial hair then the bee-fearing general public.

Not a beek till its spring and they're still alive. 'Till then, here's what I did before bees took up all my spare time.
Pic says it all
Taking a break from the hike

you guys are a bunch of amateurs! Who needs guns to get meat? That's sissy stuff!
Far better to just jump in and grab the victims by surprise with your bare hands, two at a time!:
Ok well that was a few years ago in my wilder days.
Now i spend more of my time vegetable gardening and playing my banjo:
Oh good, another lady beek! I think that's about 5 of us now... C'mon girls, post with pride!
well, I've put it elsewhere, no reason not to here as well. If nothing else, I guess it'll keep the bugs and mice out of the place.
Just be sure to warn all women and children before entering this thread.
I don't know how to post pix, but I look just like BBO, except I am older, greyer w/ less hair on top and if I got down in that pose I would need help getting up. And I feel the same way too about self exposure, photographically anyhoo.
