Wow those are great pictures!
The bees with the bit of blue, well I never thought bees could be that beautiful.
Those are cute ones.

I haven't stayed up to date over the years on the honeybee CCD but I've
read articles from time to time.
I'm curious if the U.S. will put a ban on the imported bees from Australia,
just read an article on that the other day, they think the imported bees
are not helping so much as was thought. And earlier today I read an article
about a british beekeeper who has succeeded in creating a new strain of
honeybees, a new breed called the Swindon Honeybee that are resistant to the varroa mites, the bees groom one another.
Now they will be waiting to see how long this breed takes to more populate
throughout the country, I'd like to keep up to date on how they do on that.
If I come accross the article again or a follow up I'll post it in here.
