Your Firearms Are Useless Against Them!

Sometimes you need to make your own fun at a Nationals game.

Watching a game earlier this summer (I'm thinking June), I noticed there were a bunch of bugs swarming around the upper deck near where I was. I didn't think much of that; DC in the summer is Bug Central. Then the swarm moved a little closer to where I was sitting.

That's a lot of bees.

Apparently a hive was on the move, and decided the wall a row behind me was a good place to take a breather. I wasn't really bothered by it; for some reason bees don't creep me out like other bugs do. Every once in a while one would land on me and wander around a bit, then take back off.

Then I noticed that my friend and I were the only people within about a 10-seat radius. Cool with us; we got to spread out and put up our feet.

I'm guessing they got evicted later on.

Now if I'm remembering right, that cluster there means the queen was on that wall and wandering around. I wouldn't think that would be a suitable place for a hive, but the bees probably know better than I do. I didn't see anything about the little show in the newspaper, so I have no idea what was eventually done with the would-be hive.
