Awesome photos, DD! We had a swarm settle in one of our trees in Utah many years ago. It was quite interesting to watch! The ity found a local bee kpper to come remove it. It didn't break any branches, but it was a massive ball of bees!

I hope the government will eventually step in and ban these horrible chemicals. They may not be as harful to large animals/people, but by killing the bees (and I've read several stories regarding this issue in the last couple of weeks), it is causing harm to all life. Very sad.
