Bees of Greece

So we are here in Greece and had the opportunity to visit the bee yard of my brother-in-law.  I snapped a few pictures so you can see what a Greek beehive looks like – they are very colorful.

A top feeder - notice the dead yellow jackets in the frozen syrup. Yup - it is cold here!

Storing hives bodies and supers over the winter - since it is so cold here they can keep these outside without having to worry about insects and pests.
