Bugs ... and Bees, Oh My!
I'm sorry. My apologies to anyone who doesn't like to think about bugs!
I promise bugs won't become a major topic on this blog, but I am writing about them for the second time this week.
Yesterday was a lot busier than I had anticipated.
The Saturday Spotlight post I had planned for today just did not get written.
Instead - I am going to “shine my Saturday Spotlight” on a mysterious encounter I had yesterday.
Why did about 50 bees suddenly swarm my kitchen window yesterday afternoon, for the better part of an hour?
These bees were persistent and their buzzing was alarmingly loud! I was extremely glad they were on the other side of the window screen. I wish I had thought to take a photo before they began to disappear - or better yet record a video, so you could have heard them buzzing. Unfortunately, all I have is this photo, taken after many of them had disappeared.
I'm not positive - but I think I know the reason all these bees paid me a visit. My hypothesis will be revealed in a post on this blog next week! If you have any guesses in the meantime, or stories of similar visits by bees - leave them in the comments here.
It seems to have been my week for bugs! First I discovered on Monday that I had picked up three hitchhikers ... and now I get an unusual visit from a swarm of bees. I love most creatures great and small - but I mostly prefer the furry kind!

Hoping you have a wonderful weekend - bug free!
