i woke up first, around 6am to the sound of a swarm of bees or yellow jackets. it was so loud, i worried that we had parked our tent near a hive, or that the yellow jackets all over our campsite last night were foreshadowing a swarm that i was hearing now.

so i went out looking for the hive or swarm - and didn't find it. instead, i found the hum of bees and other winged insects everywhere - and at this meadow nearby, every square foot was filled with insects buzzing around at ground level, presumably pollinating and otherwise going about their morning business.
