a box of bees
got home..found a box of bees in the mailbox ( first photo ) ...so i put out the bee house ( second ) and then opened the box...a few had hatched out in transit ( third ) and so i put them in the refrigerator fr about twenty minutes to slow them down ( fourth )..the outdoor temperature ( fifth ) was well warm enough and so i opened the mesh bag ( sixth ) and put it out in the house ( seventh )..in a matter of a few minute ( five perhaps ) the hatched bees began to emerge ( eighth through fifteenth )...solitary, non-aggressive pollinators for my suburban back yard..and, with luck, cocoons in the autumn...i will be putting the cocoons i harvested last autumn out over the weekend...more bee news as it happens..or as i find it.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
