Hive check

Jeff went into the hives today.  I missed out on taking pictures of our overcrowded hive but I caught up with him when he was in the last hive.  This hive was requeened and is very active and overly friendly...if you can say that about a hive.  All of our hives have always stayed rather uninterested in us but in this hive the bees kept landing on me and they were all over the camera.  My guess is that they did not like the black camera.  The bees buzzed all over me and for the first time ever I put on a veil to take pictures.  I did not get many good pictures but I got a couple of nice ones with my new macro lens.
