tree down!

One windy evening about a month ago, a large rotted tree fell over a busy side street. The timing couldn't have been more accurate; a large suburban SUV-esque vehcile was pinned and smashed beneath the heavy dead tree. With the impact, the tree split and revealed a large honeycomb covered in bees. It was chilly that morning, probably about 38 degrees, and the bees scrambled to keep the dying queen warm. I took these pictures early in the morning, and by 9:15 AM, there was no evidence on that street that a tree ever fell.
