Looked out the front door a few minutes ago, and--http://snipurl.com/rhq7--a swarm of bees has camped out across the patio on one of the presumed dead trunks of the queen sago. If you go to the picture, then click on "next picture" you should get an enlargement of the proximate middle of the swarm. Very hard to photograph--the wings of those on the outside are flapping exceeding fast to keep that mass cool at the core.

Step one was to admire the swarm from as close as I could get comfortably. Step two was to photograph them. I have no idea what step three is.
