Earlier in the year, honey bees seemed to disappear from the area then came back in the late summer to feast on late blooming flowers. Now, at least one venturesome honey bee got out to enjoy the unusually high temperatures that were found in much of the Ohio Valley the last few days. Photo © 2012 John Blair
