    Default My wife says

    I am easily entertained and ya know what...she is right!!! I hadn'tt seen my girls do any orienting flight yet being a new beek. My hive population dropped and then starting surging. I just happen to walk up close to the hive(i didnt happen, i was headed there) and had the PLEASURE of watching the new bees get their wings...there was hundreds if not thousands. I almost mistook it for a swarm, but i got a chair and just watched......what an awesome sight, I even went and got the neighbor and he brought a couple of beeers over and grabbed a chair. He is around my hive as much as me!

    Yes, it's an amazing sight. The first few times I saw it I was worried that it was robbing situation. However, now I can enjoy it for what it is...and boy are there a bunch of bees in my hives.

    And he will stay around your hive as long as you have beers. Wish I lived closer.

    It is spectacular! Both my hives had a unison wing stretch today. My wife spotted it from the livingroom, and knowing I was out there, walked out to see if I was laying on the ground covered with bees! When she spotted me sitting comfortably, she just shook her head, and went back to the house

    Who can pass up some free entertainment, eh?
