Bees re-united

 Posted by Picasa
Uniting bees at the end of the nectar flow. A little confusion, but nothing a good read of today's paper won't clarify.

Note to non-beekeepers: one colony is placed above the other and separated by a sheet of newspaper so that they instead of mixing and fighting, they mingle gradually, exchange scents and set up home together. One queen is of course removed prior to uniting.
