Gregor Knauer is part
of our Landscaping Department. He has also taken
responsibility for the bee colonies in our garden. Gregor is
transferring a newly aquired colony of bees from a nucleus of 4 frames
to their new home. During this process the nosy emu came over to see
what he was doing. [Photo & text: SA]

Here is a closer look
at one of the new and very busy frames. On the far right, we can see
the smoker that helps to calm the bees during inspection. Also to the
right, inside of the hive, we can see a feeder frame filled with
diluted syrup to compensate for the lack of nectar at this time of the
season. Gregor is checking to see if he can locate the queen of this
new hive. [Photo & text: SA]
