swarm enough for ya?

Bees are fantastic: they're fuzzy and funny and make honey and look great on orange

but i'd never thought of them as wild -they just seem friendly and cute. I was wrong, of course. I'd never seen them swarm

not only is the size of the swarm impressive, but the noise it makes buzzes you down to the sternum

and when they settled down, they made a HUGE living branch of bees in a tree

but for some reason, i was the only one out there -everyone else in the street went hiding insides

i tell ya, bees are wild. I quite like wild.
