Some of my family on my Mom's side, raised and sold honey bees, along with honey...all through the Great Depression, and up until the 1970's. I got the feeling they loved it a lot, as a kid when they would talk about it.I tried to get them all in the image. There was a incredible cloud of them, and I was not one to walk into thousands of flying bees.
As for your photo...you should have gotten closer!
I can crop the image, but there is little to see, very few are on the outside of the supers. Perhaps I'll get up closer in the evening when they settle down a bit. Its a warm day and they are extremely active.
I guess I can now use my 100-400mmL + 1.4X TC
Or you could just wear a beekeeper suit...
