Bored...but with a cammera.

On March 24th I was bored and decided to attempt to get a decent macro-shot of the italian hive here at my house. You can judge if they're decent or not.

Here some bees are filling a gap I accidentally made between the cover and the super, with propolis to seal out the elements. That green powder on top of the cover is actually oak pollen from one of the half dozen oak trees that shadow it.
