Stand Tall!

I finally got around to super the hive today. They wern't exactly happy to see me. Just as I walked outside, befor I had my protective gear on or my smoker lit, this bees flew out at me noisely and first darted toward my face, then did a figure 8 with my legs. Anyways, I lit the smoker, carried the super over there and, with my veil and gloves on, opened the hive. Just before that, when I smoked the enterence I paid more attention to see why the bees always took flight when I smoked them. It turns out that when I smoke the enterence the few hundred bees holding up the few thousand below them in the beard all let go and all those bees drop to the ground and it is followed with a loud, VERY agitated BUZZ. So, after seeing this and having thousands of bees take to the air I was nervous to say the least. I quickly took off the cover, lined up the super, put the cover back on and, briskly walked away. After the bees calm down a bit I'll go back out and take a photo...it may be a while.
