"The Swarm"

I let my dog out the front door to take care of business like I do several times every day and followed behind him. I was standing just a few feet from my front door when I heard this humming noise.

I Looked up and saw thousands of Honey Bees flying around a small oak tree directly in front of me. I then looked into the Oak Tree and saw to large swarms of Honey Bees forming on two different limbs of the tree. I went back inside and got the camera and took some shots.This is just one of them and only shows a small portion of the swarm. After my dog did his deed, we went back inside, and left the bees to their business. About 15 minutes later the U.P.S. man came, and I went out to tell him about the bees, and they were gone.
