I was at the beach and missed the call by about half and hour, so I grabbed my camera and headed down the street to Nao’s house in time to see the most amazing thing–a beautiful swarm of bees in her back yard, settled on several branches of a bush beside the hives.
Help was already on the way from across town so I left me bee suit at home and settled in to sit under the swarm and listen to the beautiful sound of 10,000 bees!
Once the work began of placing the swarm in the hive the bees dropped off in clumps and swarmed back onto the branches making the sky fill with gentle honey filled bees. I was able to help a bit and to take many photos which was such a blessing.
At one point I was standing arms stretched out as the air filled with more and more bees, unafraid and filled with joy.
Yesterday I got to dance with the bees~
