Last Fly Day of 2010

Sometimes on a Winter Fly Day very few bees come out of the hive.  Then only briefly to drop off dead bees or to take a cleansing flight.  Today, however they are spilling out in droves.  At 55f in the shade it looks like a mid Autumn day out there with the bees flying out of the yard looking for any remaining pollen.  Tomorrow is forecast to being even warmer.  Which will be a great way to start 2011. 

Mary's Hive
This year i started tracking the fly days.  They're listed on the calendar at the bottom of the blog page.  I don't know if it will lead to anything but it's worth watching for now.
