Today it hit around 60 degrees, and all of the hives were active with cleansing flights, orientation, undertaker duties, etc. A couple of hives were bringing in pollen. One in particular was very active in collecting pollen with about every third bee or so bringing in some nice orange pollen. MUCH more than any other hive. Which is somewhat surprising, given that there's not much (most would say nothing) flowering out there right now around here and it's been below 20 degrees the last couple of nights.

What's the chance that this is the only hive finding pollen right now? Not likely, huh? Or is it just the only one collecting it?

Anyway, I like it. This has been a good hive for me for a couple of years so far. I think I'll raise some queens next year
