No pic.
Not sure why that's not showing for you.  I emailed Mr. Bill and he sees them.  I'm doing Google photos instead of PB.

I was looking through my pics and found this one.  I didn't realize that honeybees would harvest the fallen fruit in my "orchard" but there you go.

You mentioned PhotoBucket, are you seeing an image saying that I need to upgrade my photobucket account?

Adjusted permissions to the album, you see them now?

No PB notice. Just a small round with a light colored slash in it.


Your June 03 post, I see all those pics

I have a similar issue with the wasps in my neck of the woods... It all starts with the birds... once they damage fruit on the trees, the wasps swarm in and begin eating all the fruit (while still on the trees). I have no idea where all the wasp nests are (not on the house or we'd have removed them), but I had to be very plucky to get out and harvest the fruit while avoiding the feeding wasps this year.

I'd be a lot happier if it were bees getting that delicious harvest.

Anyway, this is the hive where I left an empty box on top and couldn't get in there to check on them before they had constructed quite a bit of comb.  With the hive dying off, it gave me a look at what the bees will build if left to their own devices.  Check out this comb structure.



Great visualization of "Bee space"
