Where are the bee hives????

These bees were unloaded off of a truck the day before this Gigapan was taken. The bees were transported here on that truck from North Dakota.

We set the Gigapan up on the side of a hill and then drove down to the bees to work. You can tell what time of day it was because of the heavy dew on the grass and the perpetual haze on the horizon. Lots of pollen coming into these hives, bright orangish red pollen...nice apiary!!

We sampled bees ,estimated the number of frames of bees, and fed pollen patties to 144 colonies in this yard. We did it in three hours then drove to Angel Camp to meet a beekeeper at another apiary.
