Hearing the buzz of bees isn't unusual in my neighborhood, bees frequent many of the fruiting trees. But hearing a large swarming buzz coming from a tree when I *know* there are no flowers on it catches my attention.
Ok, maybe it was stupid of me to have gotten so close, it was a big furious storm of bees on the move. But when I fetched my camera, they had mostly alighted on an apricot tree, in a dense hanging cluster.
I took photos until there were too many buzzing around my head, which was maybe two minutes. An hour later, they'd flown on. Yay, springtime!
