Today we took the four-wheeler to the beehive(see post made in October). It was pretty nice out at 42, give or take a few degrees. We didn't see any bees, as you would expect in January. We found out a while ago we could climb the tree and look into the hive so I took the camera and tried to get some pictures. I had some success, but it is hard to take pictures through a small hole.
Well, here is the best picture I got. You can kind of see the combs that run across the tree.
This picture is to show why I had such a hard time taking pictures of the combs:
Here is a picture of Danny by the hole where you can look in at the combs. The tree isn't very easy to climb.
The draw where the beehive is located is rather pretty and has quite a few trees, as you can see in the following pictures. Don't be fooled into thinking there are a lot of trees in Eastern Montana though.
