Fanning the Hive

I’ve kept bees for a number of years and they fascinate me.
My father is a better beekeeper than me so this is his Father’s Day print.
Bees fan the hive in the summer to keep it cool, while some are doing that with their bottoms in the air other bees are returning with pollen, or setting out for more supplies.
