Bee eggs–honey bee first lay

The warmer spell of Spring weather has energised the honey bees and the Queen has begun laying new brood in earnest. Here are two of her eggs. It is the first time that I have seen bee eggs and I don’t know why but I found their shape and tiny size quite surprising.

Very interesting. There was an article in our local paper that some hives here were killed in our harsh winter. Very bad news, with the decreased population anyway.
