My brother came over today to see the bees for the first time. He was totally amazed how calm they seem. The sun was hitting the hive and the bees were doing their thing. His comment was that there were hardly any bees flying around. I told him to put his back to the sun and look up in the blue sky. WoW! It looks like an airport! He was surprised that bees were going everywhere and he didn't even noticed. I opened one of the hives (taking a dare not suited up) and showed him they were too busy to mind us. Next year he wants me to put some hives on his property. Got one hooked!
