My Bees stopped flying during the Total Eclipse

So today was a total eclipse in Austin, TX. The totality fell over my house. The sky grew dark, and even though we had clouds, I was able to see the eclipse. The birds went quiet and the bees stopped flying.

In other news, I’m seeing Indian Painbrush popping east of Austin, I think our honeyflow is near.

I spoke with a beekeeper one county south of Travis. She said that they have supers full of mesquite honey, so apparently mesquite flow this year is good.
