Just wundrin Wal ... so AFTER my hive has got a Queen I move it home at night when all the Bees are asleep and they will commence foraging from the new place and return there to feed the Queen?
I have seen on the Web that Native Bees locate VISUALLY and wonder if they will get lost if moved from their old surroundings?

i have a few mangoes , but they are only young and no flowers this season , maybe next one and ill take a good look when they do flower to see whats doing the pollination here ..

Are you sure they're bees? They look like a species of soldier flies to me. Ptecticus Tenebrifer?

yes i think so teddy ,
they should work out where they are and how to get back there,
they usually spend some time re calibrating we noted here when we have moved new hives from other places ...

European black bee



Is a native in the north of Europe, but what is used most common is the South-European bee.In Belgium and on one of the Friese eilanden the black bee is still kept and preserved.

Australian bees are very nice colored with turquoise blue.Read btw that the humbag whale found his way to open sea from the crocodile river.

That is a very colored one, that greenish.Never saw a green bee before.
Bee keeper nearby where I live has the Italian bee species for years.Last year his harvest was more than 30 buckets a 15 ltrs of honey and this year even more.No spraying in the area and that is noticeable.



About the black bee on Texel.Dutch spoken, but you can see the bees.

Hives from the bee keeper nearby.

No Man ... they're Native Bees alright, although I don't know their Scientific name. We found their hive in a tree up the road and sometimes stop to listen to the activity inside. Buzz, buzz!

(Strange what amuses ancient Hippies! We're stoned of course ...)

Wally, I think I recognise the feet in the photo!

problem fixed teddy ,,


oh they are quite common swamp feet up here , hahaha ,
no one wears shoes much when they are young so we all end up with the front part of our feet quite broad ,
shoes were not required at school until quite recently ...

https://wheresongbegan.com/?fbclid=I...THPBp5UAiCX7OM


sounds interesting ,
i wonder how many know the first song birds were from Australia ,
and that all the songs birds sing stem from those ??

those melodies haved also shaped music humans have made ,
its important to look back to the roots of things to understand the full picture ,
id urge any aussies able to check this out if it comes to their town ,
im sure im not the only one to appreciate this sort of thing ...
