What is that buzzing sound?

Ever wonder what a swarm of bees looks like? Here it is. These little guys came to visit us and hang out in our apricot tree. By the way that mass is a lump of solid bees.
We were excited to see these little visitor, but we were also worried that someone would get stung. They were only a few feet from our well traveled sidewalk. Hubby really wanted to keep them as pet, but we decided to let them go to a better home. We contacted a very nice local beekeeper who came by our house and took them away for us. He just held his box under the swarm and banged hard on the branch and down they fell right into the box.
Someday we might have bees.....
but not today.
