Perseverance...

From VBA Member Annie Watson at Thistle Hill Apiary and Gardens in New Haven comes this great image and a lesson...wildhive

It seems the days of this small swarm colony are numbered...And yet they valiantly work to bring in the last of the nectar.

"A lesson for us humans, to carry on and keep trying to solve the problems... even when it seems a pointless endeavor...Never to give up. This is a practical lesson, but one for our hearts as well."
