Heather Moorlands 2013

FSP_HEATHER_BEES_014It was a fine sunny day when Rod Kirkpatrick came to photograph my hives at The Peak District and took some great photos like only Rod can.

He thought it would be a good idea to take along a WBC hive for  the best effects and he managed to capture some interesting shots, while we were there and he also photographed my ‘normal’ hives that were hard at work in the middle of the heather season.
