I want you to hear the bees. This was filmed (if you can call it that–I stood there with my camera that isn’t really the best for making movies) in a field beyond the woods in our backyard. No sound from civilization typically reaches this area. That rushing sound, that is the sound of hundreds of honeybees along with some native bees as well, all happily working the Japanese knotweed that is blooming now. It feels pretty wild to stand in the middle of it all.
