My daddy's a "Top Story"!

OK, not really, but it kinda looks like it. On the front page of the Brenham Banner-Press's website, there is a picture of Michael Kelling removing some bees from a car's tail light:

"Michael Kelling gently removes the tailight of a car, exposing a mass of honeybees that had attached itself to the vehicle Tuesday afternoon. Kelling, whose hobby is beekeeping, collected the queen and hundreds of her entourage by carefully scraping them into a box — all without a single sting. The swarm was apparently seeking another place to set up shop. For people wanting to know more about honeybees, the Central Texas Beekeeping Association is holding an informational meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Brenham High library.Banner-Press/Derek Hall"

But I have the inside scoop! He said that he got a call from one of the reporters that she had a swarm of bees on her car (they showed up after she got to work that morning). By the time he got there, there were only about 20 bees flying around, and she said that they had already all left, and he said "No, they are inside." Sure enough, there they were, inside the tail light of the reporter's car. He also said that because they had moved inside, they were done swarming, and would have stayed there.

I am sure he can elaborate more, so ask him if you want any more information.
