Our bee hive on 4/29/07.

From the mid-80's to the mid-90's, we had a beekeeper keep honeybee hives on our land. I was glad when they were gone only because I could walk in the area where they used to be. My mother wanted them again and finally, on 4/28/07, she got a new beekeeper to put in hives. The guy gave me a bee suit so I could stand next to him when he released them. They were pretty docile for bees. I was maybe six feet away from them, and none even landed on me. By the next day, workers were taking water from my waterfall.

I will add more information here later about honeybees. Sorry, I never did (no time).

Here are some photos that I took on 6/23/07 of the honeybees at the bird bath:
Seven honeybees (I think) drinking at the bird bath.
Close-up of a honeybee in flight - from the previous photo.
Six honeybees (I think) drinking at the bird bath. This is also a close-up of the first photo.

I took this photo of the bee hives on the lawn of the White House in Washington, D.C., on 6/12/09:

My mother took this photo on 9/9/09 of a peacock that showed up on our land but the photo also showed our one beehive that we had at the time. The photo is dark because it was rainy.
