Yesterday, whilst hiking in Rancho Canada del Oro we saw a swarm of bees. The noise was incredible. Having recently read “The Secret Life of Bees” I knew immediately what the sound was – it resonates through the air so that you can feel, not just hear, the hum. I wasn’t as scared as I thought I might be to see so many bees in one place. Sometimes you see something so awesome in nature that you forget about being afraid. As it turned out, I had nothing to fear anyways – not a single person was stung.
