lucky shot

snapped the camera at this seagull about 20 times as it flew arround, this is the only picture I got and this is unedited apart from reducing size to upload. I like it.

if you go down to the woods today....

friends inspecting a fairly new hive to find the queen bee, it had been noticed that there was not much activity with the bees. I am a good distance away using my zoom lens......
 after giving them some smoke, all the hive comes into sections and the combs all lift out seperately.
 each section inspected and no queen bee to be seen, there are also very few bees so the thought is that she has left and taken bees with her.
some of the cells have grubs in them so one of them may grow into a new queen bee..... story to be updated then!
