Bees a-swarming at the Albuquerque Botanic Gardens

29 Apr

Aww… ain’t it sweet?

The good times are rolling at the City of Albuquerque BioPark where resident honey bees are swarming as we speak.

I wrote about the BioPark bees last year, introducing their keeper Tomás.  Even more lusciously, I’ve tasted the BioPark honey which bursts with floral notes and the promise of fruit, seriously rivaling the bouquet of the Serenade Blend made by Casa Rondeña winery further up the valley. Touché!

Surrounded by 36 acres of carefully-tended gardens at the BioPark, it’s no wonder their girls are burgeoning.

    Great swarm shot. Quite a lot of bees there. I was going to ask if anyone captured it, but it looks like you said they moved on…
