bee hive in costa rica.

My best friend works at a job training facility in Costa Rica. They provide job training and jobs for costa Ricans and the surrounding indigenous tribes. They started a bee keeping program. I was visiting my friend and she offered to give me a crash course in bee keeping. So we went up the mountain and she taught me a little bit about how to keep bees and identify different problems with hives. Took this photo while she was showing me how to check for drones.
