It's 12 noon on August 5 (birthday of two of my daughters) and as I look out on the hives, I noticed that they are not in the sun at all. This is a good thing in Atlanta when it feels like 105 and very humid as it does today.
However, it is my understanding that the bees feel much more inspired in the sunshine to go out and forage and work hard in the hives. This will not be a day of inspiration for them - as you can see by their hanging out on the front porch. Usually in the middle of the day there are only a few bees hanging out - most are inside working or outside foraging.
