Bee Swarm!

This amazing thing happened today -

I discovered this bee swarm today in a tree at our office - we called in the apiarian (bee guy) Ben Blackwell (with Betty), who removed it by snipping the branch and dropping the whole hive into a box for relocation. Quite exciting!

Tell me your Bee stories - go on, tell me.You know you have some. Beeeezzz.

Jellyfish at Botanical Gardens / Albuquerque Aquarium

Recent dire prophecies about the extinction of fish in many parts of the world anticipate sadly that humans will go, the way of the fish - as they are left with nothing but "jellyfish and slime."

At least the jellyfish have a certain alien beauty and resilience.
Maybe we will transform into a new life form.
