Honey Bee (Apis melifera)

This swarm was in our garden this afternoon. Now collected and ready for rehoming. The bees in the swarm were remarkably docile while I cut them free of the bush and dropped them into a basket. Pity the same couldn't be said for those left in the hive which stung me through clothing (including leather bee-keeper's gauntlets) numerous times.
