Swarming Bees

“Fame is a bee. / It has a song / It has a sting / Ah, too, it has a wing.” Emily Dickinson

Early this morning, I was in the backyard and noticed several bees landing here and there. I continued to work until a neighbor, talking across the fence, advised me that another neighbor’s bees were swarming from the hive and were in a tree across the street. I grabbed my camera and walked down the street a few doors and sure enough a large accumulation of bees were in a low hanging branch. Two men were suited up and attempting to entice the bees into a new hive. All very interesting.

Dark Skies & Roses

This early evening the setting sun was very bright against my neighbor’s trees. Beyond the trees, to the East, the sky was dark. Soon the wind picked up, thunder rumbled across the sky and a brief, heavy rain ensued. All this color and noise followed by a thin rainbow to the East. The few roses we have were drenched and battered. The white one I photographed the other day, looked refreshed this evening.
