Beehives in the mountains

 

Modern beekeepers can make use of the fact that they have pickup trucks and will follow the flowering times by bringing their beehives in the area where plants are flowering. In recent years I have seen beehives being brought very high up. Here for example they are close to Ammoutsera, at around 1750m. The intention in this case is probably to get the bees close to the flowering berberis and a few weeks later thyme which makes the most highly prized honey.
