Late season hive

The bees are still going at it collecting pollen an protecting their hive. here are a few pictures I snapped today. The yellow jacket trap still  is going strong 20 ft in front of my two hives.

You can see the multitude of yellow jackets captured.
I continue to smash them with my fly swatter in front of the hives. The above is about two weeks of captures. our temperatures are in the 20's at night an in the mid 60's during the days.
 Here are the girls going at it with a "robber" yellow jacket

 And still they bring in pollen. Tomorrow we have snow in the forecast and a high of 46.
I think this is dandelion pollen.
