Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Red Pollen

After yesterday's rainy and cloudy day the Bees seem very eager to work :) It is sunny again and the temperature is 24'C. Perfect for collecting lots of pollen and nectar. But this time I've noticed Red pollen going into the hive and of course I took out my camera and hunted for the perfect shot;
I'm not sure where this red pollen comes from?
Yellow, red and orange pollen
Could this red pollen be from the Red Non-stinging Nettle maybe?
Returning home with precious nectar. Our dear ladies are very busy today :)
