This was a very shiny airplane that we saw at the airshow on Father’s Day weekend. Our family went to see the Snowbirds – you can see one of my munchkins in the reflection – she’s got her pink cowgirl hat on!
Anyway, I thought it was cool that a plane was named after a bee. I’m told they have a distinct noise to them. The weird thing about them is that the propeller is mounted in the back. Here’s a link to a better pic. Bizarre-looking planes.
Someday soon hopefully I’ll get out to check the bees – the poor girls are on their own this year, for the most part. Life is so busy for me these days. I’m not sure whether to call myself a lazy beekeeper or cite various sources that recommend staying out of the hives as much as possible. That’s one thing about beekeeping – there’s never a shortage of advice, and there’s a good portion of it that’s directly opposite all the other advice! Some say every 10 days, others say stay away. Hm. Well, I’m thinking next week sometime. Stay tuned.
