    Whoever thinks to do research such as this on drones? Usually, they're just researched for fertilization quality. Really found this interesting regarding weights, times and especially oxygen consumption. Thanks Eddy!

    After further review and testing, it's inaccurate. I had drones flying in numbers this morning at 11 am and it was 55 degrees. I also witnessed my queen flying back into the nuc at around noon with temps in the upper 50's. Hopefully she went to the club and some drones picked her up for a good time :lol:

    Edit:
    Saw her come back again at 3:00. I tried to get my Iphone out but she went in the hive :cry:

    Of course I came back out with my 300mm Cannon D-40 but she was a no show.
