The bees are cradled carefully in the arms until they make their way up to the Queen which is dangled in a cage around the competitors neck. It is hard to see, the pictures were taken through a thick screening to keep the cranky bees contained for crowd safety.
Another picture taken in the bee yard.
Superman in the old train station(which hubby helped move to it's new location), it's used for demonstrations and a classroom teaching area.
A very funny, trained Billy goat. Goes across the bridge to retrieve his own cup of food, which he pulls up on a string, it is the cutest trick ever. Needless to say he is a crowd pleaser so he gets fed a lot!!!
Girls on the bee tractor.
Having a swinging good time.
