Lots O’ Bees!
Big beehives sure are interesting! This particular hive was in an abandoned shack in upstate New York near the Joaquin campground, and while it was a lot of bees on the outside, I can only imagine how many more were inside (the wall on the other side had no signs of bees, so they must have been entirely in the space between the inside and outside walls).
Luckily I was able to use my zoom lens for this photo, so I was far enough away to not get attacked. The hive sure was loud though, even from where I was, and I definitely would not have wanted to get any closer.
