back to the bees
This is the ham shaped mass of bees next to the creekbed in Big Rock. I was sure they were building a hive because they were very, very busy. There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to what was going on, as they were all moving erratically. They were oblivious to everything around them, including the photographer who was carefully sliding down the slope, closer and closer to their project. There are a number of beekeepers in Kane County, and it always amazes me that the taste of the honey is dependant upon what type of flowers the bees gather their pollen from. Fresh hot biscuits with sweet butter and honey sure sounds good after a day of photographing bees!
