I have been watching this honeybee swarm on this same tree for over a year. During the winter, I only witnessed a few bees buzzing in and out, then in spring and summer, I have seen it where the whole tree trunk is covered. Not sure but I believe them to be Eastern Honey Bees.
These are some of my most dangerous nature photos for me to take - as I am extremely allergic to both bees and wasps. I tried to get good photos, but not easy when making sure none of these little guys get too close.
