Even if you find one post on the subject, I've posted a lot on basic beekeeping skills like installing bees, harvesting honey, inspecting the hive, etc. so be sure to search for more once you've found a topic of interest to you. And watch the useful videos and slide shows on the sidebar. All of them have captions. Please share posts of interest via Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

I began this blog to chronicle my beekeeping experiences. I have read lots of beekeeping books, but nothing takes the place of either hands-on experience with an experienced beekeeper or good pictures of the process. I want people to have a clearer picture of what to expect in their beekeeping so I post pictures and write about my beekeeping saga here. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a Master Beekeeper! Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

Six Feet Under Bee

The little orange bee has the job of carrying out this dead bee - I think the dead bee may be a drone because he is big and because of the way his eyes look. I followed this little worker bee and took ten pictures of what was happening but because she moved so fast with her grim job, this was the only one in focus (and in it, she's almost out of the picture!)

She moved him away from the hive and finally dropped him over the edge of the deck to fall into the bushes below. Posted by Picasa
