Honey bee on small yellow flowers. An astragalus
Not a trophy, but a nice blacktail for the freezer later on!
I wondered why the camera had been unplugged & the battery and wire 10 or 15 feet away back in the trees. Usually it's an elk that chews up the wire, but it all was still in good shape. I thought I knew what had done it & I was right. The bear just didn't want me taking his (or her) picture I guess.
A closeup. Probably from the rear
This is why I don't put any of the hives up on the hill. I do have a 12v fence charger, but it would be a risk even so. Not being the world's most accomplished bee keeper, they have enough problems putting up with my administrations. I don't need any help from the bears.
