About a month ago, we showed you some pictures of bees in our yard. They've been around for a couple months, and now and then someone has been chased by them (e.g., a telephone company linesman last week). But last night they departed. Not sure why. Perhaps the warmer weather (in the mid 90's yesterday). Here are some before and after pictures.
Unfortunately, no honey - the comb was dry. Some red ants were still hanging around, so we're guessing they had a feast.
