It's been pure rain here in Portland OR for the past few weeks. Yesterday we caught a break and the weather was great.

As I was out in front of my house getting ready to do some work on my bus I noticed my neighbors bees swarming above his backyard. He was gone so I ran over and snapped a few photos. While I was in his backyard my wife called me and said, "I think your bees are swarming". I ran back over to my house and there they were, swarming.

I was able to capture both swarms. Here are a couple photos:





The first swarm was an easy capture but the second was very tricky and involved two extension ladders and rock climbing gear.
