Sting in the tail

Postby Aceyone » Sat Aug 24, 2013 12:30 pm

While at Bough Beech yesterday I saw what looked like a dark smudge way up near the top of an Oak Tree,on closer inspection turned out to be the biggest swarm of bees I've ever seen

The bees are the dark smudge to the top left of the right hand tree

As close as I could ( or wanted ) to get

I tried counting them but gave up after 1,248.356 or thereabouts ;)

ps just done a calculation based on a grid and reckon there are 10.000 plus in the above segment which was about one eighth of the total swarm -so estimate between 75,000 and 100,000 bees,that's a lot of honey !
