I did hike about a week ago into Granite Mountains to one of the springs where I have planted six cottonwood trees. At this spring there is a type of tall tree like bush that is predominate, and currently it has little tiny blooms out. It was a warm day so I was hiking Au Natural, and while tending to my trees around these bushes I could here the very audible humming of lots of bees who where going after the little flowers. I remember thinking to myself, I hope these bees are not the africanized variety, cause I'm pretty much a sitting duck, nekid, out there in the middle of knowwhere, by myself, if they decided to attack. I guess all you could really do is get as far away as possible from them if they did get riled up and start stinging. I used to spend time at a spot on Deep Creek, where there was a hive, on a branch of a Sycamore Tree for one summer. I had a favorite seat on a rock, about 15 feet just below the hive, where I had a scenic view of a big pool lined with trees on the creek. They never showed any signs of agitation by my presence. After winter passed and I visited the spot again in spring, the bees where gone, with only the honeycombs of thier hive remaing :-)
