This afternoon we were privileged to be the temporary hosts for a Honey Bee Swarm. The short story is that a new queen hatches out in an existing hive. When she is mature, she leaves the hive taking a number of drones with her. They land in a temporary place while scouts search for a new suitable location. They can be there for minutes, an hour or a day. After hanging out on our mailbox for about 5 hours, they left. We followed the cloud as it moved across our yard and disappeared over the corn field. Very cool.
I see a Honey Bee stamp in my future.
