Swarm of Honey Bees

A huge swarm of honey bees! This was taken the same day that my other bee picture was taken. This is the swarm that was part of the swarm demo!

What they do is put the queen bee into what is called a "queen box" and the swarm will surround her as her "queen pheromones" gets around. Honey bees are the most docile in this swarming state, to the point that you could hold the queen box and all they'll do is swarming around your hand!

This is so cool. When you touch this queen box it feels something like cotton.
