The Split

Today was a big day for our poor little Trigonias (Australian Native Stingless Bees).  We split the hive to double our stock, and it would be fair to say that it causes a bit of disruption to the poor things.  Hopefully they'll settle down in a day or two, and life will get back to something approaching normal for them albeit in a strangely reconfigured abode.

We seem to run our lives in parallel, our bees and us.
