A place to see my world
This colony is actually pretty wild, hence the comb all over the place. We rescued them from the corner of a field and were looking to see what we could do with them, but it's difficult to see what's what when they have built the comb to their own design...
I very much doubt I could build a better one, so I won't criticise their attempt. ;-)Bees fascinate me - so I think the picture, as their comb, is beautiful.
Richard, their free design is much more beautiful than what we humans force them into - curtains of comb that fit perfectly with a bee-space between them. And clever of them too as it means we can't steal their honey ;-)
I have wild bees in my garden wall. it's such a pleasure to see them coming in and our and visiting my flowers.
I had to click to see it bigger. Bees and I have an understanding--I greet them and let 'em dance around the garden, they keep buzzin' and doing their deal without interference.Works so far!I think they appreciate that I'm allergic. I appreciate their cooperation. LOL
