Last Monday we had a swarm of bees land outside the door at work. You might know it, I never had my camera. We called an apiarist and he was happy to come get the swarm. He brought a new box and collected four pounds of bees from this swarm. It was interesting to watch. He finally got the Queen and put her in a little plastic box for traveling. After he left a couple hundred bees showed up on the water pump where the Queen last was. He said they would hang around for a few days.
I finally remembered to bring a camera in today. Nothing like it was, but there are some left. I hated missing the chance to photograph the swarm when it covered most of the water pump. I decided a few photos of some bees is better than missing the opportunity altogether.
