Bee Nest Update.
23rd September 2012: It was pouring with rain when I arrived at the nest early this afternoon. The bees were huddled on the southern and western sides and in between the combs, out of the driving rain. This presented an opportunity to photograph the naked comb structure. There were still many bees leaving and arriving on and from their pollen gathering runs. There wasn’t a lot of activity from the bees that remained on the combs.
