Yesterday morning I visited the Scatter Creek Wildlife Area here in Thurston County. I met my friend Glen out there for a little stroll through the large area that was wiped out by a wildfire last year. The place looks barren, but life is springing back in spite of the devastation. We didn’t see many bees, but enough to make it interesting.
I encourage all you beekeepers and bee lovers to get outside with your cameras or cell phones as soon as possible. One of the best parts of beekeeping is it gets you out into the natural world and makes you much more aware of it. So go and shoot anything that moves. I guarantee you will learn a lot and have fun at the same time. You never know what you might see.
