Our backyard honey bees face daily threats, not least of which are birds who sit on a fence by the hive and wait to pick off a bee that might fly by. Took this shot around 5 p.m. yesterday, about a half-hour past quitting time for these hard working bees. There wasn’t much traffic, so the birds left.
