    Angry First Sting of the Year

    Sure. Just toss a pattie on. Had my jacket on but my veil not up.

    Right in my bottom lip. That's a new one.

    Ouch.
    I love the smell of nectar in the morning.

    I hear ya. I went to add a little sugar just for good measure and BAM! Right on the finger. Try to do a favor for a bunch of women and see what happens?! lol
    They obviously never heard of "don't bite the hand that feeds you".

    I was trying to help a girl back in the hive other day, knocked her off the blade of grass into my hand, immediately stung me at the base of my middle finger.... gratitude for ya.

    Three so far, two where random accidents not near the hive just walked into the path of returning foragers and got hit for my troubles: one right between the eyes, and the other mid cheek, I think my bead freaked her out ;-)
    The third was my fault, I was cutting a zip tie during an inspection and they took offence to the "snip" as the side cutters did their job. That one hit a vein on my wrist, felt the venom hit my shoulder in no time!

    I got my first six out of the way all in one day. I was doing a cut out.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
