Bees "Meet" At The Park
This swarm of bees has chosen to congregate on a branch of a tree between the tennis courts and softball field at Collinsville City Park. City staff is keeping an eye on them and keeping unsuspecting folks away awaiting arrival of a beekeeper to take them to a new home. -- Ted 3:15pm Friday April 15, 2016
Note: I drove by a few hours later and the bees were gone ... hopefully to a safer permanent home. -- Ted
