Moonlight session

Ive been itching to get this out. As the sun was setting and the moon appeared I snagged a few on its maiden voyage.

Honey Harvest

Discovered the hive on its side a few weeks ago, so I decided to let the bees calm down a bit before harvesting the honey. I took one full super off and returned after a week (yesterday) for the second. The area is a woodland nature reserve with little in the way of farming nearby. The wooded area is mainly pines. Having taken the supers off the bees need feeding as Ive taken their honey, the white round thing is a top feeder which is then filled with sugar water. The bees then collect this and store it in their brood box.

Ive been riding the  (cut) outline of this paipo for a while now and have made a few for various people. The shape goes really well and Ive made some others but always go back to this when its small+clean. Just fancy a change.
