    Default incredible foraging today

    we're having unusually warm temps today in advance of a strong storm system.

    all twelve hives in the home yard have lots of activity, with almost 100% of the foragers returning with pollen and swollen abdomens.

    i'm not sure what they are bringing in, but they are flying off the ridge top and going down into the valley for it.

    the color of the pollen varies from a pale cream to a light yellow.

    i wish i would have thought of that, a video would have been even better.

    too bad i won't get home before dark, and the storm front comes through tonite.

    It happened here to. I don't know about any nectar coming in, but I checked two hives yesterday, and the bees were flying and bringing in what I thinki was dandelion pollen
