Bee Queen for Halloween

31 Oct

Happy halloween, fellow beeks and mellifera lovers!

May I present my niece, Sasha, Most Royal Queen of the Hive. At least for tonight.

Sasha, Hive Queen for Halloween

Earlier this year, the Hive Queen opened her first hive with me.

In some cases, that meal was a juicy honeybee snatched in mid-air like candy at the Day of the Dead paradeHay más tiempo que vida.
