Bee Careful

Here is the reason my eclipse pictures have not yet been posted.

This swarm of bees, in an oak tree at Palomar Observatory, is directly above the walkway that takes our visitors up the dome of the Hale Telescope. As such I am spending most of my day outside directing our visitors toward a safer, but longer, route to the dome.

UPDATE: Thankfully, the bees have decided to move on.
