A swarm of honey bees clustered on the high branch of a tree next to the bee yard. my Dad had to recover the bees, so it was interesting to watch. They settled about 60 feet up in the tree. As my Dad got into position in the tree to recover them, I was able to get some good shots of the group.
I was challenged with the extreme backlighting and dense leaf cover, but I was able to make do with the flash and better beamer.
My Dad was able to recover the bees, and they are spending the night in a temporary hive. All in all, it was interesting to see the whole process.
