Around 3:30 each afternoon there are several Honey Bees that come out of the hive for orientation.
This is how they learn the location and surroundings of the hive.
Some days it is larger than others. Today it was great!! They pour out of the hive….climb up the front and take off. Most fly around facing the front of the hive….others spiral up and come back down. Perhaps they’ve been out before.
I look forward to watching them every day. Looks like a large bunch of foragers getting ready to go.
