Entry Number Judge's comments and award
0308 - Bees getting a welcome drink from the birdbath.
Barry Wilding-Webb - Exeter

An unusual and interesting demonstration of a colony's need for water; the photographer has avoided the problem of appearing as a reflection in the water.

Brahim Meraga - Tiverton
.
An interesting study of life in the wild with a worker bee accompanied by a bumble bee and a butterfly all competing for nectar and oblivious of the spider looking for her lunch
0302 - Has anybody seen a swarm?
Mike Ticehurst - Torbay

A lesson for all beekeepers not to stand in front of the hive entrance of a strong colony.

The bees know best...
Bill Pyle - Tavistock
.

The unusually small propolized entrance is in defiance of the textbook reference to 20 to 40 square cms in area
0347
Tammy Skinner - Totnes & Kingsbridge

A very interesting puzzle photo; are the bees taking water or syrup or are they gathered around the entrance of an overcrowded hive?
