What can I say about bees.

Barry the bee man who has been a beekeeper all his life has few words about them. He is still learning and surprised and intrigued.
Barry used to bring us bee hives every spring for our apple orchard pollination. We would pay him to bring them for a few months and then he would take them back, actually take them somewhere warmer for winter as he reckons they don't do too well here over the cold wet months. A few years ago I thought it would be a good idea if they moved in here permanently.

So we now have a few hundred thousand bees.

We are just beginners and are trying to learn as much as we can about a society that is so extremely complex that the more we learn the more our minds boggle. I think the reality is that we can never really understand what is going on

We listen and read and learn. 

Here we are checking the hives, and putting a new box on top of each one with a queen excluder between so that we can hopefully share some of their honey toward the end of summer. 

Oh by the way as part of my helicopter hobby I've also got a GoPro camera recently, and am loving it. This was all shot on this tiny little camera that can go anywhere.

Do you love bees?
Do you love honey?
Do you love GoPos?

Great little cameras - fab film! Time lapse is such a great way to condense a lot of info into a nice little package. Love the bees on lens moments. I've just put a pear tree pruning film on my blog - 20 mins down to 30 secs plus cutaways and captions. Love to know what you think. said...

I want a go pro.
We have native stingless bees. WE LOVE THEM!! Have you seen there hives ?? They are spiral. (Google sugarbag to see) we get a about 1kg of honey per year and we can divide the hive every year. They are so complex and do fascinating .

Hey Brendan, great pictures. Which GoPro did you get? 2, 3? Thinking something like that would be cool for beachy bushwalking business. What do you think of the still shot abilities?

Hi Francis. I have the go pro 3 black edition. I got that because it can take pictures while videoing which i wanted for aerial photography. It takes 12mp photos that are pretty good. But they are certainly a type of photo, very wide angle and you need to be very close. send me an email at if you want i can send you some examples. I am a bit obsessed with it at the moment.

We keep bees in a towbar hive in the city. I love them, they're fascinating. Collecting honey is almost an afterthought

I want to share this great testimony to the world on how Dr. Kham cured me from HSV1&2 with his herbs, I was nervous when i first contact him about the cure for HSV but i decided to give him a try because i was desperate to get cured and be free from HSV. Dr. Kham prepared the cure and sent it to me through UPS,which I use just the way Dr. Kham instructed me and thank God today I am a beneficiary to this cure and I went back to the hospital after two weeks of taking the herbs and I tested HSV1&2 Negative. So I will tell you all who are looking for a cure to his/her HSV1&2 that Dr. Kham took research before he could finally get the solution to it and a lot of people are benefiting from him right now. He also cured my friend from HPV. Dr. Kham heals with natural herbs. Please I urge you to contact him now through his email address: or call and WhatsApp him on +2348159922297. His website is and he is capable of curing HIV/AIDS, HERPES, HPV, HSV1&2, CANCER of all kinds, DIABETES and so many other infections.
