Yesterday, I did a hike in Dry Creek Regional Park, not too far from home. It was a gorgeous hike, and I saw this wonderfulhoneybee swarm. Bees are just such amazing creatures, with highly developed social systems. This was a swarm looking for a new home for a hive. When the new queen hatches out, they take off looking for new digs. I felt so lucky to see this and to have had my D90 along for the ride. It is a reminder to me that I need to always hike with my DSLR, no matter what! The iPhone could never have made this capture!
