After yesterday’s post on red honey, I was delighted to receive these photos from Utah beekeeper Reed Beatse. Reed’s top-bar hive was home to a colony that found and collected some of the candy cane feed. The red “honey” is clearly visible and makes quite a contrast with the nectar his bees collected earlier. Thanks, Reed, for sharing your photos.
Editor’s Note: Off topic, but check out the shape of that top-bar comb! It is textbook perfect. Maybe we can overlook a little dietary indiscretion . . .
