January through March, 2019

On the way home Kendal got a message that a swarm of bees had settled on a bridge near her home, so we made a detour to collect them. Fortunately there was still plenty of beekeeping equipment in the SUV. In this picture, Kendal is about to shove the main body of the swarm into a bag so she can dump them to a hive box. It was just past sunset and temperatures were dropping; the bees quickly decided the hive box was better than the railing and many of the remaining bees joined them. All this transpired while rush-hour traffic zipped by, probably wondering what the two people in space suits were up to. After about 20 minutes we closed up the hive and took them home. Quite a busy day!
