SWARM!

July 07, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

This has been my daily (pretty-well) view, during this pandemic - as I've pushed my younger son around Bracknell Forest whilst my elder son has walked alongside me.

Today, I managed to push the buggy through a swarm of honeybees. (Not by design I hasten to add!).

I THOUGHT I had my wee pocket camera on "video" mode and set about videoing this swarm of bees, only the fourth (or fifth?) aerial swarm I've ever chanced upon (away from their home in a tree or hive that is).

But as the swarm disappeared into the grounds of the 3M building (RG12 8HT)  in a Bracknell industrial estate, I realised my camera WASN'T set to video, but to Aperture priority (my mode of choice) photo mode instead.... so I quickly got off one shot (below) and that was that - the swarm disappeared.

Please note. My wee boy and I were in NO danger from this swarm of honeybees and (of course) neither of us was stung.

I also have reported this swarm on the beeSwarm website (as should you I suggest, if you see one).

Keep 'em peeled, eh?

TBR.
