    Good to see the papers still have no idea what a honey bee is!!!!

    If they had changed the 'B' for an 'H' then it might have worked better.

    Time for Change?

    Clear out your cache. Can't remember when it went, but I don't think it has been there for a while now. Although, we made a snowman only a couple of weeks ago here, so perhaps not so inappropriate :-)

    It is mentioned at pre-natal and post-natal classes, and is in a lot of new parent advice leaflets so I would suspect 90%+ of parents of under 1 year olds are aware.

    Camera advice please.

    Sorry to contradict you, but (without knowing the actual setting) I am not convinced that a 10-20mm type lens is suitable for something 6km away unless you want it to vanish to a dot, nor even for something 800 metres away. A wide lens will exaggerate the distance and make a distance object look...

    How many hives per area

    Unless I have misunderstood, the beebase figure in number of apiaries within 10km, not colonies. It does not give any idea as to how many colonies there are.

    Comment by 'harveyzone' in media 'In coming'

    This was taken using a Sony A100 with Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens.

    Philips Urban Beehive

    This was discussed recently here, and was largely dismissed as a pretty little design experiment, but impractical for real use.

    Global Warming?

    The latter was originally called Phartiphukborlz until the big red pen of the BBC put a stop to it.

    Do not open if you have a delicate constitution.

    ...go on... the suspense is killing. Which did you do? I'd go for the run away option if I could.

    Camera lens

    I don't think that there is movement in this image so your shutter speed may have been enough, although it would be wise to try an get it a bit higher. It also appears to be focused slightly back from the bee's head, and ideally you want her head sharp. Extension tubes will lose you light, so...

    Ducking Stool for sale

    That's not the length of the arm, that is just a support for the end. You cannot see the length of the arm as the fulcrum is way off the picture to the left. It looks like a photo of one I saw in Dorset.
