The trees are currently rich in pink hued blossoms and tickle the nose upon approach. What a beautiful scenery for outfit photos!
As most of you may know, I have a complete infatuation with bees. Upon arriving I was immediately entranced by a nearby buzzing sound and made haste to investigate the origin of the buzzing melody.
Honey bees! Boxes upon boxes of furry little friends to make! I approached with a delicate foot. just to ensure I did not disturb their busy buzzy routine, but noticed that they seemed a little frazzled. I decided to give them their space (I know how cranky I can get when I don't have mine) but as I turned I came face to face with the object of their frustrations...
A swarm! What a treat! I have never seen a swarm so closely and since I was, already, smack dab in the middle of it why not enjoy it? A swarm can happen for different reasons. One being the current queen decides to relocate to a new hive. My guess is this isn't the case here... usually over fifty percent of the colony will follow the former queen, if and when, she decides it's time to go. Although rare, this might be a virgin queen bee trying for her chance at the spotlight? It's hard to say but they were so close to the boxes I didn't find it too concerning. I just admired in awe and was thankful they did not consider me a threat to them. They must have sensed my admiration!
I'll have to come back very soon so that I may be able to bear (tee hee) witness to their labors and indulge in Apple Blossom Inn's honey. Yum!
