Bee swarm caught on camera in Portland, Oregon


It only took five minutes for a 2-foot-long cluster of bees to form on the branch of a cherry tree.

Some people walked by, oblivious. Some snapped photos. Some got a little too close to the bees.

According to beekeepers, swarming is normal this time of year when bees have produced so much honey, they've outgrown their hives.

The swarm hung around for about four hours and then took off.
