Bee Whisperer!   7 comments

What is it about me and bees?   On Thursday I was working in my office in California and heard what sounded like rain on my window.  I knew it was not raining because the Santa Ana winds were blowing and it was 80 degrees outside!  I looked out the window and there were hundreds if not thousands of bees flying full speed at our windows.  Here’s what our offiice building looks like:

 As you can see,  it is one of those mirror like buildings.  We are not sure if they thought they were attacking what they thought were other bees coming at them or what.  It was bizarre and lasted a good half hour.  These poor bees were tired and a little stunned to say the least after smacking up against our windows! 

After the smacking came a time of rest.  Guess where they decided to rest!  You guessed it – MY WINDOW!  Again I ask, what is it about me and bees?!  Here they are resting…

Because of all my BEE Experiences, my co-workers are now calling me the Bee Whisperer!  Oh bother!

  1. Oh Lana, that is bee-zarre! Sorry, couldn’t resist. I don’t mind bees from a distance but that close through a window would quasi freak me out. I wonder what the scientific explanation for their behavior is. Surely one of your commenters will know. Not me, though.

  2. Yikes! I’m glad there is thick glass between you and them!! Bizarre…

  3. I love the reflection of the sky you got with the photo of your building :0)

  4. At least this time they didn’t get inside your wall. I remember!

    How very strange that they smacked into the window, and that you could hear them!

  5. Oh my gosh Lana, that’s crazy!! I love that you were able to capture a picture of them “resting” on your window….unbelievable!!!

  6. Lana,
    Some of our missing bees have found your window to reestablish themselves. Many of California’s bees left their hives this year. Experts aren’t sure why but they are critical to our food fertilization. Hopefully, a knowledgeable bee keeper can give them a new home. I think they came to you because you can speak to their usefulness and help them avoid being killed.

  7. That is just tooo freaky!! What Melissa said it pretty interesting tho.
