First Pollen

Our red maple just outside the house is in full bloom and our honey bees are all over it.  We've been giving them pollen substitute but I'm glad to see that real pollen is now available to them.  They're going crazy.
Bees were busy bringing in the pollen,

This is the new outer feeder we bought at Theisen's.  It is very easy to refill.  I think I'll get more of them.  This is on the hive that I discovered is queenless.  I put some frames with young bees in on St. Patrick's day, but that may be too early develop a queen that will be able to mate. Time will tell.
