Hubby, aka The Bee Whisperer, gently picked up each straggler by a wing and put her on his mitten to carry back to the hive.

Checking On The Bees
Hubby and I made a trek to the beeyard to see how things are looking. There is lots of snow in the field and even though we did bring the snowshoes, decided to leave them in the car. I expect part of the reason for this is we had to climb over an electrified fence and hubby knew this was already a feat for me in boots. It would be a disaster in snowshoes. On the way, we spotted several bees struggling in the snow; they had been out for a cleansing flight and didn't seem to have the strength to return to the hive.
