Last week I had a surprise when I found a bee tree in my park.
Cooper the cattle-dog and I were on our morning walk when I heard a loud humming. I looked up and saw hundreds of bees buzzing around a blossoming pepper tree. What a delightful surprise. They fascinated me and I immediately got out my iPhone to take pictures.
The Pepper Tree
The best shot I could get of the busy fellows.
Obviously I wasn’t going to get too close, and when I tried to take shots of them busy with the blossoms, the iPhone just wasn’t up to the task (I need to take my Lumix for the zoom next time). However… I did take video! And you CAN see them because of their movement. I put together a short movie starring one of my favorite bears… he loves his honey and goes right to the source!
If you can’t play this video the original is on YouTube (here).
Yes, as soon as I found the bee tree I immediately thought of Winnie-the-Pooh and his misadventures while looking for honey. If you haven’t read A.A. Milne’s classics, I suggest you do, you will be charmed (here).
Perhaps you caught the surprise in the video. It tickled me when I saw what I had captured, not just a bee or two but a fly-by by a butterfly!
