The bees swarmed Sunday morning.
This shot, with the corner of the truck for reference, gives you a better idea of how high off the ground the swarm was. It's the dark spot in the center, about a third of the way down from the top.
There was a long ladder, and a saw, and I'd really rather not have a swarm of bees dumped down onto my head especially when there are three adults and only two bee suits, but it all ended without injury. I got stung once on the bare arm and my husband got one sting through his glove.
As I type this, the bees are in a new hive and they'd better stay there.
