I'm worried about Artemis - as you know she swarmed on the weekend.
I wanted to see if there was a queen present so I opened Artemis after placing the honey super on Demeter. I looked and looked for a queen but didn't see one. There may have been one and I just didn't see it - I hope that's the case.
I did find something odd - a bee with white eyes! It's a bit difficult to pick it out of the crowd - it's the big bee in the center of the photograph, head pointing up.
This a another photograph from a different angle. Too bad it's fuzzy! There it is - big white eyes!
Has anyone else found such a bee? Maybe it's an albino?
