The queen bee likes the darkness of the hive, so sometimes it is hard to find her. I have looked every time that I checked on my bees and hadn't seen her yet. Today was my lucky day. I pulled out frame after frame searching for pollen, nectar, brood, and of course, Miss Royalty. I knew she would be deep in the hive. She was probably laying eggs. I found a few frames full of brood (baby bees). I knew I was getting closer. Then I spotted her. I yelled for T.J. to come and look and a few other beekeepers came to see her too. T.J. snapped a photo and her she is. Can you find which one is the Queen? She has a long abdomen.
God is big and I am small, yet He created me to do big things. He also made honey bees and gave them a great purpose. Join me as I learn about a big thing called beekeeping from some tiny creatures.
Buzz (the blog)
Staring at the dancing bees in an observation hive, it hits me. I love how these tiny creatures communicate. It looks like they're having fun dancing around while telling their sisters where to find some nectar.
This site is digital resource for kids who want to learn more about bees. I started this blog to provide an informative text about beekeeping and bees.
So here goes. Join me on an adventure with bees. I hope we can make learning as fun as the dancing bees informing their sisters.
