It is not well on step a bunch of grape, but a essain of bees which is formed on a groseiller in the gardin of my sister, I on took well it in photo louse pouvoire to make some to you profit too.A cloud of bee arrived and they have to form a essain, I did not dare to approach me and an hour afterwards, the essain with its queen flew away, except that which you see on the photograph.A appicultor came and put a basket so that that which remain puts inside, but has the place they formed this small essain.le come evening, my sister even went and all these bees had died, it collected them and in a paper scottex placed there,A to deposit in the contener. The next morning, my niece heard noise in the contener and, the scotex opened opened and the bees has share two three flew away and took the same direction that the others the day before.According to the appicultor, these bees were exténuée and had fallen asleep of exhaustion and cold. The fact of having put them at the heat their saved the life.In WS 1et WS2 formation and flight of the bees and a sight very raprochee
PS: I had twists to be afraid, of tens of these bees were posed on my arms, my face, etc, I did not make aucuns movement abrupt and I did not note any aggressiveness of their part.J' continued has to take my photographs without any abrupt movement.THAT DOES NOT WANT TO SAY Qu ONE NEEDS S APROCHER D A ESSAIN D BEE, CERTAIN PEOPLE SY ARE ALLERGIC AND THAT REMAINS BETES WHICH PEUVE TO ATTACK ONE DO NOT KNOW WHY.

Bonjour Thomas,
Bravo d'avoir documenté la formation de cet essaim. Je ne serais pas restée! C'est vrai que si on se tient tranquille, on ne risque pas trop, mais je me suis fait souvent piquer par les abeilles de mon grand-père et cela fait mal :-(.
Excellent travail documentaire
Bonne journée

salut Thomas,
très intéressante image mais aussi assez risquée. L'essain est bien mis en valeur par les fleurs de couleur vives qui l'entoure.

Hola Thomas,
Buena toma de este enjambre mostrando los detalles, interesante comentario, saludos
José Ramón

Excellent image capture Thomas!
I can't remember the last time I saw that many bees in one place!
I love the colors of the flowers that surround the bees. They are out of focus which is good very good! This forces us to look at what you want us to look at which are the bees.
Great composition, depth of field and point of view!
