Yesterday I got a call from an old friend telling me that he had a swarm of bees. I thought, yea right. Honey bees swarming in September. That just doesn’t happen. Then he told me they were on the ground. So I told him those are hornets, no way it would be honey bees. His response was I am 95% sure they are honey bees. After a few minutes of telling him he was wrong, I told him to send me a picture. I’ll show him I thought.
This is what he sent. A large swarm of honey bees on September 1, on the ground, breaking all the rules. So I packed up and drove 35 minutes to get them. True to form they continued to break the rules and left 10 minutes before I got there. Just another day for a nice ride!
Just when you think you know something, the rules change! And honestly, it no longer bothers me. I like learning new things.
