A week or two ago we had bees apparently trying to make a hive in the compost bin. I opened the lid and they decided they didn't like it that way and moved on.
Today, we were hanging out in the back yard and all of a sudden heard a loud and growing buzzing sound. I looked up and it was a swarm of bees filling the sky, like something out of a bad horror movie. We ran inside, and they were gone as quickly as they had appeared.
I think I prefer the parrots of Ocean Beach.
