If you haven’t caught on yet, I like bees.

I realize that is a fairly odd statement. Many people prefer to refrain from contact with bees, but quite frankly I admire them.

The phrase “busy bee” doesn’t exist out of coincidence. Each bee spends its short life serving its hive, being a team player. They fly for miles to find pollen and stop at hundreds of flowers on each flight. Each bee in the hive has a job, and that is why a hive can be functional. They trust each other to do their job for the sake of all of their survival.

Quite the community. To study a colony up close, like I was able to last summer, was an education each time we checked in. Hopefully next spring we can introduce more colonies again!
