Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

I have seen swarms leave a hive, but never come to establish a new hive location. I took these of my neighbor's tree today. The honey bees came to claim a new nest site. They were all over the tree and then clustered and all then went into their new home. It was a wonderful thing to watch.

    I wonder if they bump into each other or their reflexes are that good they know exactly where to go next... Like "My bee senses are tingling!"
