A cool beehive in the Dominican Republic

Local beekeeper Jim Warren captured these images on a recent trip,
"it's fascinating how they attached to that wall
right out in the open with no shelter

Here are the prize winners for the "Best Bee Photo" contest at the November meeting.
Members brought in photos and new guests at the meeting chose the winners,
since they were imparitial.

1st Prize - Nicole Jones - this picture was taken when I was feeding the bees this fall. I put a line of honey on a frame and watched with fascination as their organization and social skills lead them to a perfect arrangement of eating and sharing...what a wonderful insect! 2nd Prize - Ashley Stephenson

3rd Prize - Susan Warwick - This is an actual swarm that decided to swarm on the side of one of her boxes.  Neat, but strange they chose the side of a box?
