Our bees take to the wing – Part 2 a photo post

 After the collection of the bees that caused a bit of a buzz last week, Ann Cushion sent us pictures of what happened next.

Ann in search of the Queen….

Eggs in the cells proving the Queen is fertile and mated.

Mated Queen on comb, can you spot Her Majesty?

Now the Queen is easy to spot with her bright yellow dot.

Feeding with sugar syrup.

Ann looking for the virgin Queen in other hive, she is harder to spot because her abdomen is smaller.

Queen is in dead centre.

Gone again.

Thank you Ann for coming along to collect our bees and the wonderful photos! 

These next photos were provided by Luke Mair from Chaos Photographic.
