In the circle of life, everything in nature is part of a great life/death cycle. During warmer days (of which we have had many in Atlanta) the bees clean out the hives and leave the dead bodies on the ground a short distance from the hive. By having my hives on the deck, I can see the collection of bodies. To see them better, click on the picture above to enlarge it.
A wren has a feast on my deck, eating the bee bodies. I tried and tried to get her picture while she was out on the deck, but my camera against the glass of the door always startled her. She ran to safety under one of the hives. If you look closely (or click to enlarge) the picture above, you can see her. She is to the right of the space beneath the hive and her little eye is glistening. She enjoyed the dead bees to her fullest!
