    How did you get your birds to pose like that? Voted!

    Precious pictures! How is it going with the lawn conversion? What kind of edibles did you convert your lawn to?

    Hi Sharon,
    No stingless bees in the USA. Most Italian Honeybees are pretty docile and with a little care stings are few and far between.I mentor close to 70 new beekeepers every year. Check out my blog at www.kenny61.wordpress.com
    Have a great day
