Bee Transplants & Bees on Trucks

The New York Times has a nice little slide show on a recent honeybee colony removal in North Carolina, though it's not really clear why the bees had to be removed...

In other news—tangentially related to the notion of trucking bees around—check out the cool truck I happened upon today in Brooklyn. I explained to the guy driving it that I'm a beekeeper and asked permission to photograph it. We had a nice conversation about the honeybees; he'd seen the recent 60 Minutes program entitled "What's Wrong with the Bees?" and was concerned.

That's one industrious and patriotic little bee!

Bonus item on the theme of bees and vehicles: some like-minded soul in my neighborhood has this fabulous license plate.
