Honey Bee

Hymenoptera

Description:

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.

Notes:

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.

Thanks Mandy - I did take a few videos as well, but haven't the chance to upload them yet. will also try to get a better photo so we can possibly tell what type of honey bees they are.
