A Spring Alarm Clock

What is that noise?  Can you hear that buzzing sound?  It's like someone is running a wood planer on idle across the field there.  Do you hear it?  What is it?  I think I'm getting closer.  Now it sounds like a small plane over my head.  Its constant, like what Spiderman's spidy sense might sound like.  Wait, look at the tree there; it's moving.  Wait...its....its bees, tens to hundreds of bees!!

This is the conversation I had with the dog this afternoon as we played fetch after work.  The large ash tree in my yard was literally alive with the continous motion of the bees.  Once I realized what the noise was it was a bit unnerving to stand under the tree like I normally do to kick the dogs soccer ball.  Once I got over the thought of getting stung I started to grin at the buzzing reminder of spring.  Its like it was an alarm clock telling me it was time to awake and get into spring.
