Petting A Honey Bee

We did some work out at the hives today.  Kitty came along and got a photo of me petting one of our bees. petting a bee

This bee was from our oh so mellow Lebowski Hive.  Not all were so mellow.  I got stung on the ankle (and it's true, the stings hurt less over time).  Poor Hans got stung 5-6 times on the ankle.
