Warm day

Today it got to about 36 degrees so D.J. and I went for a walk. After we got home I went out and checked on the bee hives. They were pretty active so I took some pictures.

Sam and a few heifers.

A few heifers around the water tank. The whitish one is mine.

Sam and the heifers again.

Sam and the steers.

CHARGE!! They were actually chasing Sam.

Another charging picture.

The bees. No kidding right?

Another picture.

Our cat, Curious, found the bees very interesting.

He ended up getting stung later on.

The weather has been cold and windy lately. I'm hoping it will warm up soon so the bees can break cluster.

Another Post

Well, I guess I'm starting to post a lot. :) Today I walked around and took pictures of whatever I wanted to. Here are a few of the pictures I took. Right now it's really cloudy and starting to cool down so I probably won't be able to take any pictures for awhile.

Our cat, Shadow. She and her brother are probably some of the best hunting cats we have.(Oh, just to let you know, she's not dead, just rolling in the dirt)

Sam, Molly, and our big steer.

Bees and Cattle

Today D.J. and I walked to our reservoir. Along the way we saw our heifers which our dog Sam really enjoyed playing with. We walked on the ice at the reservoir then headed back. On the way back we swung by our steer calves. After we got home I went and took some pictures of my bees. Here are the pictures.

Probably my best bee picture I took today.

Bee Close-ups

Today I went out and looked at the bees. They were out and about gathering water so I took some pictures of them. It was a lot easier than taking pictures of bees on flowers because unlike a bee taking nectar from a flower the bee drinking water stays in one place longer. Here are some of the pictures I took.

So, I figured today that if I'm not going to post on this blog I should either delete it or start posting. :) So I'm choosing the second option. Today Mom and I put sugar candy on the bees. I didn't get any pictures of that but I did get pictures after. The bees were really flying today as you can probably see in the pictures.

 The four hives.

The candy we put on them.
