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

We have them in our apartment, quite scary. Wish they could be relocated.ReplyDelete
That's a large one. I don't mind beehives when they're up so high. But the ones closer to the ground...that's scary.ReplyDelete
Lotusleaf Thank You for this look at your world so many miles away from where I am!ReplyDelete
Wow!! I am a lover of bees because they pollinate and I can understand the fear of some who pass by. Let's hope that they are allowed to survive.
That's huge beehives! I have frequent visit by bees early in the morning everyday.... may be there is a beehives nearby...ReplyDelete
A bit scary but if they are high up, i don't mind too!

I'd be so worried if I see a bee hive, even if it is high up on the tree. The sting is terrible!ReplyDelete
