September: Honeybees

Honey bee swarm, MichiganThis honeybee swarm was in a Michigan park in May. There seem to be bees coming and going from a tree hole, lower left.  Sometimes a beekeeper will collect a feral swarm such as this.  Honeybees were brought by people to North America. The bumblebees were here first, as discussed in my book, The Bumblebee Queen.
