@Ronnie 2¢: Seriously Ronnie - it was swarming! Apparently the bees get intoxicated on nectar (saw that on BBC Breakfast last week) so are not so interested in all the people brushing past...

Anyway...drunk or not, one should pay atention to bees and other "visitors"! I once saw only some beds of lavender in a park and they were full of bees...and other insects!

@Japanalia: The fields were swarming Gabriela... but it was all okay, plenty of children running around too, so I guess it was quite safe!
