7. I witnessed a swarm of bees once
Edited on Tue Jun-02-09 09:35 PM by Lone_Star_Dem
It was an amazing sight!

I was outside working in the yard when I heard them coming up from the south. I wondered what all the buzzing noise I was hearing could be. I live in a slightly remote area and couldn't think what kind of machinery it sounded like that. I walked up to my patio and then I saw some them come through the trees (literally around all the branches, not over the tree tops). They started off as just a few, but before they'd reached the center they were dense enough that they were creating shade and I was watching (from in the house by this point) with my mouth hanging open in amazement. Then they again began to thin out and fade into the northern horizon.

It was a thing of beauty I'll never forget.
