High on bees

Oh look, another swarm!
Would've been fun to capture it myself, but here's why I couldn't:
Yeah, I don't have a 12-foot-ladder like Michael does. The bees first clustered in one tree, then took off and reclustered down the block.

It's really interesting to follow along under a cloud of bees, trying to figure out where they're going.

This was a big swarm and took an hour to vacuum up. They were headed to a family in Nederland, up in the mountains. A swarm that size might have a good chance to build up enough stores there before winter comes.

Sure hope so. They were sweet girls.
