This evening we attended the Alamo Area Beekeepers Association meeting in Helotes (west of San Antonio)…long drive for us but we made it only a few minutes late. We were asked to help judge the photo portion of the competition this evening. There were several categories and in these pictures, we are holding the first place winner (Mark) for the Bees & Nature category. I am holding the second place winner in the same category. I especially like that the photographer captured a bee activity people seldom get to see – watering. 🙂
Next year we will likely pass on judging and perhaps enter the competition ourselves. There was also a honey tasting and there is a wax division but unfortunately there were no entries for the wax portion. Too bad because Mark and I were interested in seeing how other folks work their beeswax. Oh well, perhaps next year.
