More March

If you're the squeamish type, you might want to skip the calendar page this week. I happened across a swarm of bees right outside my condo last year, so I had to go and shoot them. I had to get pretty close to them to shoot, but I didn't get stung or even buzzed. People seem to have a fear of these insects, as evidenced by the fact that this swarm was killed in it's entirety the next day by an exterminator. I guess we didn't need any honey after all.

Killed the next day!? What a shame! Swarming bees are very docile and don't tend to sting. I've handled a couple swarms, while even wearing shorts, and never been stung once. Bees are good for a lot more things than to just be exterminated!
