BEES

Lake Kutubu, Papua New Guinea

Caption: Every once in a while we get a swarm of bees come through the area here in Moro, sometimes they land on the rotor blade or some other bit on the helicopter. These guys decided on some pavers in front of the helicopter and have stuck around now for 4 days.

Thanks BoazR, Doug, Eileen, Lori, Wanda, Psyc, & Lucy.
Not sure about being attracted by the hydraulic fluids or other oils. They light just about everywhere. After a couple days they leave.

Amazing what happens in places other than where you live...like this! Certainly not one that I would observe! Very unique, sand so clear! Good one!

Love the honey bees!
I have a friend who keeps bees and have been lucky to get up close to them.
Congrats!

Awesome picture! Is there a phermone like odor comes out from one of the hydraulic fluids of the helicopter that atracts them?

Thanks Dorothy, I wish I could get a hive going, but way too many other flying aircraft around here. The honey is excellent here too.
