We have bee hives on the edge of our garden and I walk past them most days but on this particular day I could tell something was wrong. The buzzing of the bees was much louder than usual and as I got closer I could see that wasps were attacking one of the hives and coming out with bits of chopped up grubs to feed their own young. I went back to get my camera equipment and dressed up in a full beekeeping suit. I spent the next three to four hours kneeling down at the hive entrance; it was a fascinating and exciting experience.
