Ever wonder exactly where those bees are in winter and what they’re doing? This thermograph shows a cluster within a hive box on a cool day in September. The cluster is in red, generating heat, the hive is mostly yellow. The rectangle on top of the hive is a brick on top of the cover.
EDITOR’S NOTE: If you have a good photo of bees at work (or beekeepers!) and want to share it, please email it to email@example.com for consideration for publication in The Newsy Bee.
