Look What Happened on Beautiful Spring Lake Beach!
The sight of this sent people screaming!
As you are heading to the beach to enjoy 'local summer', hope you don't run into this!
A giant swarm of bees attached itself to some poor, unsuspecting beach goer's umbrella at the south end of Spring Lake Beach. This happened on Labor Day.
When a strong wind blew the umbrella over and the bees started swarming, people near the umbrella literally ran, screaming, in opposite directions. Beware of a queen bee and her pack!
The bees apparently came from the direction of the boardwalk.
And the bees weren't done -- they found another beach umbrella to attach themselves to once the first one blew over! I would have been SO out of there -- beach day or not!
The closest I have ever seen in person to this scene is when I once saw ladybugs everywhere on the beach during mating season. Lol. Not quite the same thing. And still that was creepy!
