pollen sacs brimming

It always seems like Todmorden and the surrounding locale gets more than its fair share of rain fall – it’s a wet place.
But today was one of those rare days of glorious autumn sunshine. We went to one of the hives to install a mouse guard. However, we couldn't because the bees were so active: taking advantage of the warm, dry day. They were busily going in and out of the hive, their pollen sacs bulging with bright yellow pollen. We wished we’d had our camera with us to take a photo of them. But in the absence of a camera a drawing will suffice.

  1. Hello Bee Credible. Really liked your website great pictures. I became a beekeeper in September 2010 and had our first honey in September this year. Our hive is on our allotment in Fallowfield Manchester. To help spread the word about beekeeping I created my website about beekeeping. You may be interested in passing these details onto your group.
    The site is full of useful information so it can act as a useful resource to answer any questions. It would be great to hear from you. All the best, Melanie
