  1. We had a great time yesterday at the Orange Blossom Beekeeper's Association's National Honey Bee appreciation day!

    The attendance was fantastic, and we were kept busy showing folks nests and sample stinging insects that we put on display. Lots of Junior Entomologists had their hand at trying to identify African Honey bees using our microscope table. And several youngsters even outsmarted my 'gotcha'-- A Syrphid fly, which is a superb bee mimic.

    Thanks to Chris, Beth and everyone else who put this event on. I know it was a lot of work, and you did a great job. Pat on the back!
