Olympic bees

Alex and I are out in San Diego for a few days because he is competing in the State Games of America in track and field. We went to the Olympic training facility outside of town and toured the area for a couple of hours. Here is the visitor center–alas that the souvenir shop was closed!

It turns out that everything blooming at the training site seems to attract honeybees. Everything from tree to ground cover seemed to be humming with our friendly insects. Here are a couple of the more colorful pictures I took today:

We’ll be back soon, and I’ll resume shipping queens on Monday!
