On the way home Kendal got a message that a
swarm of bees
had settled on a bridge near her home,
so we made a detour to collect them.
Fortunately there was still plenty of beekeeping equipment in the SUV.
In this picture,
Kendal is about to shove the main body of the swarm into a bag so she
can dump them to a hive box.
It was just past sunset and temperatures were dropping;
the bees quickly decided the hive box was better than the railing and
many of the
remaining bees joined them.
All this transpired while rush-hour traffic zipped by,
probably wondering what the two people in space suits were up to.
After about 20 minutes we closed up the hive and took them home.
Quite a busy day!
