This branch of the Austrian Hesch family is descended from Johann Hesch and his wife Marya (Schlinz) Hesch, who came to America from Oberschlagles, Bohemia with three sons: Paul, Mathias, and Anton. +++Johann & Marya settled in Buffalo County, Wisconsin but moved to Pierz, Mn in about 1885. .+++Mathias settled in Waumandee, Wisconsin and moved to Pierz in 1911. +++Anton never married but farmed with his dad in Agram Township, where he died in 1911.+++And Paul, my great grandfather, settled five miles away, in Buckman, Minnesota. He died there in 1900.

An early "photo-micrograph"

Does anybody know if the phenomena described here is just a strangely-worded description of something that actually happens with honeybees....or is it total hogwash?  Maybe honeybees really do fold their wings tightly when they're inside the hive.  I don't know.  Obviously, the writer in 1914 thought it looked like the bee was "unhooking" and "re-hooking" his wings, like when you take your shoes off at the door and put em back on when you leave.  Hm!
LOL...did the picture help you imagine the honeybee at all?
