I was walking through the Aoyama Cemetery this morning looking for good bugs, when I saw in the distance a whole bunch of something swarming around a tree trunk. As I got closer I saw it was a large swarm of honeybees. I got up close even though they were swarming all around me and got a few pictures of them on a tree. Then I heard a loud buzzing above me and I looked up and saw thousands of these bees covering a huge branch just above my head. I felt like I was in a National Geographic Movie. I braved the bees and got a shot of the whole swarm together. Hope you can get an idea of how many bees there were. Click on the bottom photo for a better view.
