Re: Countdown to the ban on incandescent
I know this is off-topic from the original post's subject, but since someone touched on this issue:
Everyone - post more photos and post bigger photos. The more and the bigger the better. Photos are hugely informative. The more detail, the more informative. Whoever is lobbying for fewer or smaller photos is totally missing the whole point of the forum, which is maximum information exchange. It is worth a small amount of inconvenience to see a highly detailed photo. JMHO.
Just for fun; My 85 year-old and 70 year-long (caught his first swarm at age 15) beekeeper neighbor, Ted, watching me hive a newly purchased nuc in my rooftop apiary. Notice how shiny and new all the equipment is, including my bee suit. Ted's eyes are so sharp and practiced, that he spotted the queen from where he was standing as I transferred the frames.
