Robbery

It is hard to believe that we have such wet weather this summer. Rain, rain, rain. I didn’t say bad weather because in a way I liked it; I had an essay to write. Though, on the other hand I wished so much to go to the mountains a few more times; now it keeps snowing up there. If we won’t have an Indian summer this autumn, so that snow will melt, I can say farewell dear mountains at this very moment.
Wet weather is also toilful for the bees. There’s a lack of food for them and illnesses take a huge toll among them. Well, the lack of food caused that the small hive on my balcony was a victim of robbery. Our bees had hive full of honey and obviously some alien and hungry bees smelled it. Too many bees died in just half an hour. Luckily I was at home, so that I could close the hive before all were killed. I took them to my cousin, who is a beekeeper, too. I almost closed the entrance of the other two hives, so that the bees can easier defend their hive from alien bees.

A sad story indeed. And I found out that it is really difficult to make a good photo of bees …
