Starting at sun up through noon or so I see a path of bees coming and going from the same directions. The numbers are impressive and would be down right scary to the non beekeeper. They're tripping over each other while coming and going from the hive. It seems all 3 hives have found the same source. Then when afternoon arrives it all comes to a grinding halt and you can just see 2 or 3 bees at a time coming and going from the hive. I have noticed a big squash field about 2/10ths of a mile up the road. The blooms seem to only open during the morning hours so I'm assuming that's where they're heading. The directio of the bee flights see to match up as well. You would think they would look to find another bloom for afternoon collections...lazy things! lol Just an observation.
