Releasing the Queen

After the successful weekend transfer of our new bee colony, Noam came by early this morning to release the queen from her cage. Here's a photo array of queen cages.

According to this piece, the nectar of spring-flowering trees has a higher sugar attract pollinators like bees. Chicago is in bloom right now, happily for our feisty foragers.

Saw this one walking to Bruce's today.
 And this one walking to the produce store.
 Bees won't have much luck with this one, though...
