Kirk encounters an avalanche of bees

Holy Kamoley, what a day Kirk had today. I'd start to describe it, but I really couldn't do it justice.

Suffice to say that there are no photos of the Studio City trap-out; the first nine photos are from hiving the swarm Kirk caught with Pshairyn; the tenth shows a hot-tub-trap-out; and the final three show the process and outcome of melting beautiful clean wax from Backwards Beehives.

Follow along as Kirk tells the story.

Here's Kirk:
