We spotted this on the way up the mountain Foia near the town of Monchique, Portugal. If anyone knows exactly what is going on in this picture, please comment on this post. All I can tell you is what you can see in the image. There were loads of bees buzzing around these rectangular blocks of waxy looking yellow stuff that looks like it has been collected in the bottom of something as a liquid and has solidified and now been removed. Is this what’s on the bottom of a bees’ nest? And why have they all been removed like this? I have facebooked a bee keeper/honey maker, someone who I met ages ago on my travels. Maybe she can shed some light on the matter. Regardless of what it turns out to be, it sure is a pretty colour.
