Lotsa bees here, but nothing to do with Beyoncé – the owner of this motorcycle parked in Sydney, Australia came back to find a swarm of bees had taken possession of it:

If you think that’s scary, check out the ‘before’ picture, when the swarm was three storeys high, looking for their queen (who had landed on the bike):

Bees swarm when they are looking for a new home; they feel vulnerable and are less likely to sting, but people in the area were understandably scrambling to get away from the swarm, which could bee seen from blocks away.
Beekeeper Vicky Brown was called in – she collected the queen and the other bees followed.
Look how calm she is! Short sleeves, no protective gear …. that’s how Australians roll!
