I've never seen anything like this before in my life. Since I'm so easily amused, and constantly starved for attention, I have to share my new experience with as many people as I can. It all started about an hour ago. I'm goofing around in my study (doing nothing dirty, sorry to disappoint), when I suddenly notice this strange noise coming from just outside the window. An old, malfunctioning fan would be the best way to describe it, like an all encompassing, low level hum. My curiosity piqued, I pull back the blinds to see what the commotion is. I was expecting one of my weird neighbors getting up to something that could only be described as no good. What I saw were hundreds upon hundreds of bees swarming about in my side yard, just outside the house. I have never, in person, seen this many bees concentrated together in such a relatively small area before in my life. It was...well...neat and concerning in equal measures. My first impulse was, of course, to rush outside and see it up close and personal. Fortunately my second impulse, that driving need to not die horribly via massive killer bee bloodlust spree, kicked in before I could get my shoes on. I opted to watch them from the window instead. Over the next hour, I watched as the swarm slowly came together, collecting along the branches of a little pine tree just on the edge of the yard. Once I noticed they started settling down, I decided to throw a little caution to the wind, and investigate it boots on the ground. This is what I saw. I don't know what it is, or what they're doing, but there's something vaguely concerning about it. It probably has something to do with the fact I now have about 900+ stinging insects clumped up in a tree just a stones throw away from where I live. Has anyone ever seen anything like this?
