Bee Veil

Every beekeeper wears some sort of protective gear and most will, over time, wear less gear as they get used to stings and get comfortable with bees… even me.

Today I went to collect a swarm, something I have done many times without a sting, except today the bees were not happy with me at all. Usually swarms are passive things but these girls were damn cranky giving me a number of stings on the hands, arms and one in my ear… and then I got this one which reminded me why you should wear a veil.
