When beekeepers go on holiday, I am afraid they look out for local bees and local honey as well as taking time to admore the scenery.
The first time I spotted what I was convinced was a Swiss version of a bee house I was caught unawares and failed to take a photo. on subsequent occasions I managed to grab an image – but as I was moving past in a train the photo is not brilliant.
What do you think? Is it a building for bee hives, with coloured entrances to avoid drifting? Or is there another explanation? If it is, does anyone know where there is a better picture?
I have to admit that I have some concerns about my deduction, but it is odd that the ones I saw were so similar to each other. Whilst at first sight the building seem tall, they would need to be tall enough for the beekeepers to stand when they dealt with the bees.
This page seems to support my theory
