I had not noticed the beehive on the roadside Copperpod tree just outside my gate until my neighbour drew my attention to it yesterday . The tree with its thick canopy and its formidable height gives the perfect place for the wild Apis indica bees to build their hive. Nectar supply is also assured for the bees in the neighbourhood gardens and the flowering trees planted on the roadsides.
Although I am very happy to see the beehive so close to my home, the neighbours are anxious. The sting of these large wild bees is very painful.
I hope the villagers will not destroy the beehive when I am away at work.
I thank the team of Skywatch Friday. For more pictures of the skies from all over the world see
