Copper Bee Apiary

A garden apiary in Whittlesford, Cambridge, UK - honey bees and their beekeeper Hilary van der Hoff.

Busy October Bees

The air is full of busy buzzing bees!

Yesterday morning was overcast and drizzly, but the bees were still thronging back and forth from the hive entrances.

This morning, in the sunshine, the airspace is even more crowded - it's almost like summer again.

I wonder what they are foraging on? I have not noticed much in flower at the moment. I hope they have not found beehives in another apiary to steal honey from.
