I like sharing things I find. Especially when they take me completely by surprise.
Here is something that surprised me the other day while spending a weekend away from home:
My secret dream job is to be a Bee Keeper. There is something about the idea of keeping bees, and watching the cultivation of honey, that I find fascinating.
Plus, honey is yummy! If I did keep bees for a living, I would probably eat more of the honey than I would sell.
Anyway, here are some pics I snapped of the hives and it’s workers. They were so active and vibrant, I was glad I had my camera with me.
I don’t know enough about hives, or the life of a bee in a hive, so I won’t even try to explain it. All I can say about my “sweet” discovery the other day is this:
- The humming and buzzing coming from within the hives was almost deafening when I stood right beside them. It was a very mesmerizing experience.
- I was really close to get some of these shots. The bees were flying around me and landing on me, yet I was not stung at all.
- It smelled amazing!
