I haven't been to my bee hive in a couple of weeks. It was great to see them today. It was late in the afternoon and so cool and cloudy I thought the hive would be fairly quiet, but it was the busiest I've seen it. Bees were landing all over my camera and me today. Pollen was steadily coming in! I was glad they still seemed to recognize me. I've missed them.
I wonder what it means when the antennaes are bent like they are in the photo above? I often see them much straighter. If you're reading this and you know the answer, please let me know!
Bees do not do well in water. This little gal was drowning near the edge of the pond below the hive and I rescued her today. You can see her wet fuzz.
As I left the bees I noticed how much is beginning to bloom. What a lovely time of year -- except for the all wind. I get really tired of it ..

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
