    Smile Landing practice?

    Noticed one of my four hives this afternoon (4pm) the bees were swarming around the entrance up and outward in a three foot by three group. First thought was robbing but none were fighting and no dead bees. A few were landing with pollen and not many leaving. I think they were house bees out for flight training doing "touch and goes". The other three hives were calm and busy doing their own thing!

    I sometimes think it's a good thing they aren't commercial airline pilots. I often see them come in for a crash landing on the board when they're heavy with pollen. Or they fall over, or crash into a group of bees already hanging out on the landing strip. They right themselves very quickly and I imagine them looking around to make sure no one is laughing. Bees are great, aren't they?

    They were doing a lot of nose dives and they would crash into the front wall and drop to the landing board.
