Great Xmas present for me to open the hive in 65-degree weather on Christmas day... missed the girls!
Anyway this has to be the K-wings I've heard about... this girl has outside the hive yesterday (you have to look kinda closely for the wings):
This was the only one I saw... the hive was packed with bees (7+ frames and heavy flights) and lots of stores and seemed very healthy otherwise. I have grease patties on. How worrisome is a single K-wing in midwinter for a newbie?
