Caption: Honey bees (Apis mellifera) swarming. Swarming is the method by which honey bee colonies divide. The process is initiated by the queen bee, who leaves the hive along with a large number of worker bees. The swarm settles for a short time on a branch or stump, and then departs to form a colony in a new location. Photographed in June, in Surrey, UK.
