2009-04-12 Urbonavicius beehives - Lithuanian style.

This is the old Urbonavicius farm in Anyksciai, Lithuania.
The hives were not working at this time , but had been on our previous visit.
The hives are all painted differently, in the belief that this helps the bees distinguish their hive from the neighbours'.

Double doors. I havent seen inside one of these, but I was told that they had a summer and a winter part. Not sure.
