Last week a huge swarm of bees gathered on our playground just after worship. Fortunately the children were able to go out to play on the field around the back of the school. A bee expert came and placed this basket for the swarm to go into. It was too hot for him to take the bees away during the day since they wouldn't stay in the basket in his car. So he left the basket under the table and came back later to collect it. He told us there was a marked queen bee in the swarm. He was surprised because normally marked queens can't fly away from the hive because their wings are clipped.
