Farmette 1769

by Monica Melograna-Ward


This photo was taken from the back. Honey bees focus on the front entrance of the hive for defense. But, they were very active tonight. It has been raining a lot this week and I think they were glad to be out and about more today.

I stood off to the right of the front, since the honey bees tend to come into the hive from left front. My goal is to get zero stings during my Friday night filming.

I’ve only been stung three times total. The stings are all my fault for not wearing gloves or headgear. But it’s hard to take a picture with all that on, so I’ve been taking risks. Surprisingly, the hand stings (2) hurt more that my face/chin sting (1). But even the hand stings are tolerable. I’m glad that I’m not the honey bee in this scenario, since the workers die after their successful attack.

Happy Friday Night!
