Bees On A Roof In A Hurricane

Bees On A Roof In A Hurricane

And weathering the storm just fine.

The girls were out flying in the storm, surfing the wind and dodging the rain.  The oncoming hurricane didn’t seem to bother them at all.

That’s no sprinkle they are flying through, it’s raining hard, yet these bees keep on working.   Are these my daredevil adrenalin junkie bees? Do they know that rain may kill them?

For the 10 minutes or so that I watched, only one did not make it.  After being taken out by a rain drop she lay wriggling upside down on the ground sopping wet.  I felt sorry for her and put her back in the hive using a stick.  Better luck next time silly bee.
