sadly I look similar - lesson to all - dont be in such a hurry not to be secure in tucking in clothing. HWTHSBO was going fishing early today and before he left was helping me lift 3 supers off a hive to put a 4th under them - bees in back of jacket - 3 stings on my face. Writing this with one eye closed, and a fat face- He didnt help by saying I look like Quasimodo .

I think I prefer Earth whiskey to blood wine!

As for my reason, I was stretching up to saw a branch off hanging well into the apiary and as such my veil was flat against my face.
In future I may well wear a baseball cap to stop that from happening if I can get my veil pulled down over it.
