  • Bees in the Tree

    I have never seen bees make house in a crack in a tree but they have somehow managed to call it home.

    I would love for someone to get one of those bendy camera's to look inside of a tree with a hive in it.
    I would think the structure of it inside would be so interesting. I have seen some tree with a lot of Bee's about it.
    But I can't get too close as they are very dangerous to my health.
    Like how they are hard to see in number 1 shot and then to the closer up shots.

      G'day mate

      Great images too .... and the amazing thing is "how did the bees find that the tree was hollow enough for a hive to exist"?

          Cheers Ralph. Bees don't bother me so I watched them up close for a while. They are really busy bees.

          Thanks Phil. They seem to just know this stuff about building hives and making honey - clever little fellas.

          Thanks David. Something a bit different I guess. They have only just migrated here in the last few days so they do get to work as soon as they rock up on site.

            Ummm -- all worker bees are female, so maybe it needs to end "clever little gals / sheilas / chicks?
