A Bee in my Bonnet.

This afternoon a huge cloud of bees took up residence in our back garden, alighting on the post behind the climbing rose in Piggling Bland's garden.

I took the photos with the zoom, I wasn't keen to get up that close!
But they are very quiet and settled now that they've decided to stay.
I will have to set about finding a bee man to come and take them home to his hive.
I have absolutely no idea where to start looking for one.


  1. Holy Moly, that's amazing, I've never seen anything like that. I'm sure they'd make a great addition to any beekeeper's collection.

  2. Oh WOW i have never seen anything like that before amazing, scary and wonderful all at the same time. I hope you manage to find them a home. Thanks for sharing mother nature in alls its lovely glory. Dee x

  3. Wow!!! What about trying that honey place just North of Eltham;oD

  4. Your very brave ~ I would of given them a miss even with a zoom lense :0) x

  5. How to find a bee man? That's a difficult one. If I think of an idea - I'll give you a buzz! :O) SueXXX

  6. Thanks everybody! Catherine from Angelinthegarden left me a message with the Eltham Bee man's number. Thanks so much katie. He rang me back literally moments after they had all swarmed and taken off again. it was about 24 hrs after they arrived. he said the Queen isn't as strong a flyer as the otherbees and she must stop en route for a rest, but that they will all know where they are going. And it wasn't my garden permenantly apparently. I am a bit sad to see them go. They were rather lovely, and not in the least bothersome.
