Photo was taken at the Succulent Garden.
This photo reminds me of an incident many years ago.
Back home, our neighbour had this big cactus that stood about 8 or 9 feet tall. On that cactus there was a big beehive. Occupied by big black bees. I am not sure what it's called in English but if it is direct translated it's known as the "Tiger Head Bee". That name describes it all, it looks really ferocious, its body is as big as half my thumb size.
One day, I was standing by the door. I saw my brother picked up a few good size stones. In a "get set" manner, he aimed and struck that beehive. Exactly like you watched on the television. Those bees went berserk for a second and did really chase after him. He ran so quickly back and we slammed the door. One of the bees managed to get into the house. It stung me on the head!
It was really painful and mom brought me to the doctor. I went to school with half my face swollen. I couldn't even open one of my eyes. Everyone at school looked at me funny. Obviously, that bee didn't recognise faces. It stung the wrong person. The naughty culprit got away!
Have you ever been stung by a bee before?
