The Perfect Smoke

The smoker hasn't changed design in quite a long time.  It is a lovely tool and pumping the bellows is meditative - as you can see by my glazed over expression.  You want a perfect, cool blue-grey smoke to curl out of the tip.  The smoke calms the bees as you work them.  They busy themselves eating honey and leave you to gently examine the frames.  (Photo by Brandon Boan)
