I always thought these were a kind of fig/ficus. But don't know if that's right, or the specific species.

What an incredible spotting! So badly want to see one of these in the wild.

Langford, if you read what I wrote, I describe where it was. There's also a clearly marked map as well...

Getting stung by one, not so bad. Getting stung by 10,000...maybe a problem ;)

And you need to be very careful! I had a friend with these in their backyard. Easily angered, and extremely dangerous when agitated. They put a number of her neighbors in the hospital...almost killed some. You need to find a local honey hunter and have him remove it (probably the payment of honey will be enough).

I'm pretty sure those bees are bigger than your pinky nail! Look like Indonesian Giant Honey Bee (Apis dorsata binghami) to me. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/175...

I think that's a good suggestion, Jared! What a way to go...

Leana: I'm guessing that the spider in the third image is the same species, but I don't know for sure.
