Maybe I can convince William Gibson to keep bees (and move to Austin)…

Sharon Stiteler aka Birdchick has a great blog around bird watching that I really enjoy reading. Even better, she also keeps bees, with Neil Gaiman of all people, whom she refers to as Mr. Neil.

She posted this family bee installation video on her blog today from a fellow birder (and also beekeeper) which I find fascinating mainly because of the general lack of protective gear. Bees are generally very docile when they arrive in a package, but in this day and age of over protective parenting, you would expect them to have their kids in head to toe bee garb. It was refreshing to watch, and I think the only one that got stung was the dog.
