Here are my bees. The photos were taken two weeks ago when I wanted to harvest honey and found out that they didn’t have nearly enough to get them over the winter, let alone any to spare. The year was a bad one for honey all around and many beekeepers had the same problem.

I don’t mind, I just hope they will make it. They are getting sugar water now so they can build up their reserves. The comb lying on the bottom, that was my fault. It still has brood in it, so I leave it there until its empty, then I’ll take it out. You can see in the third photo that the honey combs are empty and really light in colour, compared to the reddish yellow of the brood comb.

In the two weeks since I took those photos, they have built more honey combs and have started filling them with honey made from the sugar water I give them.

I don’t know if I mentioned it, the swarm is named Ygramul. I am amazed every time I look at the hive, all those tiny animals working together, neatly building their home. Just look at those honeycombs, it’s just so perfect.

This is gorgeous.

This is a beekeeper.  This is how much beekeepers care for their hives.  Think about that before you spew ignorance.

lemme fix that for you

"This is how much this beekeeper cares for their hive(s).” 

anecdotal information is just that, it’s not proof of anything

think about that before insinuating that people shouldn’t at least research where they buy their honey from or else refrain from buying it 

the world of food commerce isn’t made of happy little fairy tales like you seem to think

i hate being a girl.

  • we get our period monthly and it hurts and it makes us feel uneasy. 
  • we get sore after sex while guys dont
  • when we’re pregnant we’ll be suffering for 9 MONTHS 
  • we need loads of clothes
  • we need shoes
  • bags
  • make up stuff
  • nail polish
  • hair!!!!
  • WHEN GUYS JUST NEED A TUX AND SOME TIES!!
  • AND THEY DONT HAVE TO ALWAYS SUFFER
  • IM MAD!!!

and we don’t have equal status and representation in the world 

-when boys are born they have a very sensitive part of their genitals crushed off for no fucking *valid* reason in 2014 in AMERICA (and other places too) where it’s illegal to even just pinprick a baby girl’s clitoris (which is also wrong of course)

-hell yes a dick can get sore after proper handling

-girls don’t have to get pregnant, you can choose to adopt or be childfree (I mean except for accidental/unwanted pregnancies where you don’t wanna abort), women who wanted a biological child usually say the pregnancy was worth it and stuff

-I donno about you but I have a lot of clothes because I love clothes not because I need to have that many

-like boys aren’t expected to dress well and look good

-like they can’t wear makeup and dresses and skirts too well yeah they can’t because sexism (women can wear pants and unfitted shirts and shit)

-it’s not socially accepted for boys to cry or show emotions so a lot of them bottle it up and that’s not healthy but it’s society-sanctioned or whatever

just sayin’, sexism hurts all sexes, saying boys (or like intersex people too) don’t have to suffer as much is pretty insensitive and sexist

everyone suffers, it’s dickish to put down others’ suffering just because we think we have it worse, when we can work together so that everyone can enjoy life regardless of their sex. equality’s not a pissing contest

laughing cow cheese huh?

I BET THAT COW WASNT LAUGHING WHEN YOU SLAUGHTERED IT HUH

you don’t kill a cow

to make cheese

this is literally my favorite

yeah, you don’t kill a cow

you just force a cow to be pregnant over and over again

by inserting cum, that was taken from a bull by masturbating it into a baggy, in her vagina while she’s restrained on a ‘rape rack’ (yay bestiality)

you kill the babies of the cow when they’re less than 1 year old

then you kill the cow when she’s 5 years old because her milk production declines

when cows can live 25+ years and only have 1 child and live with the child for life because they are social animals and love their baby

cows don’t produce milk for no fucking reason, they do it to feed the baby they just gave birth to

just like human women

then they stop producing milk unless they’re pregnant again

that’s regardless of if it’s a ‘family farm’ or a factory farm

then on factory farms the cows also have to deal with mammary infection and painful tits because of being milked their whole life by a machine

so funny lol funnygif.gif cheese lol as if cows even had feelings lollol

fucking idiots

i didn’t know there were 400k vegans on this site?

You don’t have to be a vegan to be against animal cruelty

so
you can be against animal cruelty but participate in animal exploitation that results in 100k+ animals to be killed per year
dairy cows are forced to be pregnant (ie rape, they forcefully insert semen in them, I thought bestiality was immoral/illegal?) over and over again and their male children are killed right away, while their female children, just like their mothers, will only get to live about 5 years (out of 25+ possible), because their milk production declines so they are killed
hens are killed after ~2 years (out of possible 10+) because their egg laying declines
sheep have their rear skin cut off without anesthetic to prevent flies from living in their skin folds
etc.
all because you get too much pleasure from animal products to be vegan instead, even though you’d get the same pleasure from vegan products
so why then? laziness? ignorance? no willpower?
animal lives and well-being literally being ripped from them because “it tastes good”, “it looks good”, how selfish is that?
you do have to be a vegan
if you’re not a vegan and you’re ‘against animal cruelty’ all the while you actively participate in it, you’re a hypocrite, it’s that simple
if you feel insulted by the word hypocrite then it’s not my fault, it’s you who has to make it untrue by not being a hypocrite anymore, what can I do about it besides encourage you to go vegan because there’s no reason not to?
