  •  Lovely story. (7+ / 0-)

    I occasionally accompanied my ex on attempts to catch swarms, either wild ones providing an opportunity to increase his "herd", or desperate attempts to convince absconding tribes that really, there was another nice place Right Here to move into, and why would they want to wear themselves out looking for a hollow tree who-knew-where when there was this  nice box for them to set up housekeeping?

    Bee swarms are NEAT.  You can stand in the middle of fifty thousand bees all milling around and not get stung, because they're all half-drunk with their last honey-meal before the Great Flight.  They sing.  And talking to a queen bee is just really, really weird.  They don't think at all like mammals.
