    Lovely bee hives and well cared for. Are your bees the
    sweet tempered, golden Italian bees? The effect of the
    eclipse is a tad strange, don't you think?

    Love the colorful hives, like a row of tall "painted lady" Victorian houses.

    The video was well done. I know there were places setting up opportunities to watch chickens roost too.

    Thanks for all the responses!

    Sorry abax, I just noticed this question. Yes most hives are Italians that are very gentle. I really try to keep all of them gentle and requeen when necessary. I hate opening a hive that's overly defensive.

    I thought they had a very interesting response to the eclipse and was glad to be able to share it with people.
