A Cloud of Bees

On June 4, 2018 we had company. Unlike previous visits our company stayed. They had found a home in our oak tree. Their initial arrival is documented in a post entitled, “Bees, Please”.

While their initial housekeeping had me concerned,

they quickly disappeared into the dark hollows of the oak.

Sitting on my deck today, I heard them. And, wouldn’t you know it, I had my camera.

It appears that they are quite happy and doing well. I must say they are the best tenants I have ever had. They have not flown near the deck or the house. I rarely hear them. Just minding their own beeswax. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist that one.) They are kinda cute.

And today, they should be happy. The sky was bright blue and the clouds were exquisite. While the Ragtag Daily Prompt of “Clouds” was last Tuesday, these didn’t show their colors until today.

I think I will stay out on the deck more often.

  1. I could not make out that pyramid of bees until I looked at it on a larger screen. That was something else. Is there a name for those cloud wisps? I don’t see many like that in my corner of the world.

  5. And bees are so important to us. I leave them alone too.

    Love the sky shots. Makes you want to sit on the deck all day doesn’t it.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥
