Bearding Bees


This is a colony of bees "bearding" on the outside of the hive on a hot summer day.  

They do this to cool off and help regulate the temperature inside the hive.

I thought this was interesting...  The bees are only eared up on the "hive" sections and not on the honey supers.  Coincidence or planning???
