Observations About Honey Bees

Whilst working bees in the field, I have often come across things that stand out as unusual, or against the flow of majority thought. Some of these things are worthy of further study, some are just curiosities and yet others are just plain observations.

The Items listed at left are a mixture of these categories and many have already been the subject of discussion on one or other of the Email discussion lists.

Since the original writing of this text, the price and availability of digital cameras has made this observation process more easy and provides visible data that can be used to aid discussion and back up the claims, some of which are hard to believe, or go against the teachings in many beekeeping text books.
