Blue bumble bee 😍🐝

Still collecting caterpillars. Definitely slowed down a bit, but we have hundreds either about to be or in chrysalises. This has been an awesome and reassuring experience this year. And I’m sure releasing all of these butterflies will be a forever memory. Let’s keep our ecosystems in mind when applying pesticides/herbicides/fungicides, when mowing and clear cutting, and when consuming products and services that contribute to ecological collapse. @monarch_watch  @monarchjointventure  @usfws  . . . #monarchbutterfly  #monarchcaterpillars  #pollinators  #pollinatorhero  #regenerativeagriculture  #flowergarden  #greenthumb  #biodynamicgardening  #permaculture  #bloomwhereyouareplanted  #growsomething  #bees  #rawhoney  #buylocal  #supportsmallfarms

⁣Squares, triangles, hexagons. Bees could build flat honeycomb from these three shapes. But for some reason, they always build hexagons. Why? ⠀ ⠀ It turns out this is a very old question. Over 2,000 years old, in fact!⁣ 🐝⠀ ⠀ In 36 B.C., a Roman soldier and scholar, Marcus Terentius Varro, came up with his 'Honeycomb Conjecture'. He proposed that a structure built from hexagons is more compact than one build from squares or triangles. And because it has the smallest total perimeter, it would need the smallest amount of wax. ⠀ ⠀ Why does wax matter? Wax is expensive, for a bee. A single bee must consume about 8 grams of honey to make just 1 gram of wax! 😩⠀ ⠀ In 1999, the Honeycomb Conjecture was proven by mathematician Thomas C. Hales. Huzzah for maths!👏⠀ ⠀ Via @NPR  #Bees  #science  #hexagon  #honeycomb  #wax  #honeybeeconjecture  #mathematics  #hexagons  #honeybees  #apismellifera  ⠀

Ayudemos a salvar las abejas 🐝 🐝🐝 Esta es la época cuando debemos colocar botellas plásticas con vinagre de manzana para eliminar reinas de chaquetas amarillas , ellas salen ahora de su invernación para empezar la construcción del nido. Por cada reina muerta, son 20.000 chaquetas amarillas que no nacerán 💪🏼💪🏼 Hacer correr esta información es de gran ayuda, ya que el año pasado dio muy buenos resultados, COMPARTE!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 Recordemos que las abejas son la especie más importante del planeta tierra, y la chaqueta amarilla una especie exótica invasora sumamente dañina y nociva para nuestro ecosistema nacional. #protegamosalasabejas  #abejas  #abejitas  #abejassalvandoelmundo  #ProtejamosLaBiodiversidad  #protegamosalosanimales  #especiesplagas  #especiesinvasoras  #faunachilena  #animaleschile  #ministeriodelmedioambiente  #bees  #beesofinstagram  #abejasdeinstagram

Watching some bees do bee stuff on break at work today. #bees  #honeybee  #sunflower  #pollen  #ohio 

This tree looks like it may have then struck by lightning or something. It really stands out on this hike as the only tree around the actual trail. You can see all the amazing wild flowers and plants...and all the bees buzzing. I find this #hike  to be pretty unique and I'm excited to be revisiting this beautiful place tomorrow for an engagement shoot!

Watching Hive #9 swarm before our eyes was both aggravating and amazing. Yes, it was infuriating and the last thing we wanted to deal with last Friday. But watching thousands of bees create a buzzing tornado is quite the experience. If you ever see this in person, DO NOT PANIC. They're fat, full of honey, and focused on finding a new home. They won't even notice you. 🐝🖤💛🍯 #bee901  #loveyourhive  . . . . . #honey  #bees  #honeybee  #honeybees  #beekeeping  #savethebees  #instagramtennessee  #tennessee  #tristaradventures  #BringYourSoul  #WeAreMemphis  #901  #memphis  #ilovememphis  #choose901  #explorememphis  #mustbememphis  #MemphisTN  #igersmemphis  #ig_memphis  #instamemphis  #onlytennisee  #findmemphis  #beekeeper  #urbanbeekeeper

We are busy getting ready for honey harvesting this weekend! The bees have also been working very hard to make us some tasty honey! Come get your Saturday afternoon cycle on with us on our @thebeezkneezdelivery  bike! We are so excited to try this! We will be harvesting at the nature center from 1-4 pm for anyone who is interested in helping! #nature  #bees  #honey  #beecycle

Little unknown fact about me I am a certified, beekeeper. Finding a hive in the desert was a thrill and fascinating! #organpipenps  #bees  #arizona  #organpipecactusnationalmonument 

Bee update 🐝 We took a look into the hives last night only to find our original hive is queenless. No sign of fresh eggs or a queen. After the swarm we did spot a couple queen cells, so we decided to give it some time. But with the colder weather coming soon we ordered a replacement just incase. We are thinking of adding 2 frames from our newer hive of brood to help them accept the new queen. We are still learning and this is all new to us so if anyone has any advice we would appreciate it! We are hopeful that this will have the most positive effect on the hive as possible. Fingers crossed! . . . . . . . #beekeeping  #backyardbees  #honeybees  #localhoney  #requeening  #savethebees  #pollinators  #backyardpoultrymag  #backyardbeekeeping  #iamabeekeeper  #bees 

It's interesting what we perceive as luxury in food. The amount of work that goes into this seems lost on the general consumer. Out of all conversations about food I have every day honey is almost never talked about. Maybe it's because beekeepers are too busy working to talk about it? Or because we think we have so much of it from not understanding labels? I actually feel embarrassed learning about how special it truly is and how like all things the more you know the more you realize you know nothing about it at all. I am not going to pretend I had anything to do with that hard work, simply just cut a few combs for this weekend. Hell, I didn't even take this picture. @goddessofblackstars  ❤📷 Want this? @humblebee  will be at the Winona Peach festival all weekend in Stoney Creek.
