Hmmm...when I first saw them, I didn't know what they were and thought they were just long bees (I wasn't very smart then and I'd have to say things haven't improved much with age). I put a shallow pie dish of water out for them right next to the walkway to the house. Never, ever had a problem with them attacking or stinging. They loved that water and would let me sit right next to them and watch them drink - or whatever it is they do with water.

Of course, when I moved, I had to knock down the wasp nest up in the corner of the eave.

Glad you got out of there without being stung, Dawg!

Having a lazy day here today. Just fiddling around getting a few things done here and there.

I am pondering to go back to the big food fare today with out kid and just walk around or but there will alot of people and I am not sure if I can handle the crowd.

I only missed the elk ( Alces Alces) meat stall and a hot sauce stall yesterday.

It was lovely time yesterday, so much food and so much to taste. I did get my favorite sausages and some pralines. I found one stall that let you taste the praline filling, it was AMAZING and I think she got a lot of customers just from that.

Looking forward to more pics, GG! Bees and honey fascinate me. A friend in Mexico has apiaries, and sells his honey and beeswax as his business.

A few weeks ago there was a discussion of our respective Farmers' Markets. Today I took some photos of my local Farmers' Market.

Nice pictures, Beth! That's what the market in Missoula looked like, here not so much. Maybe 4 vendors all selling corn. I need to hit the farm stand west of town, he sells everything.
