I think that "bee on the nose" clip was inspired beyond me - it adds a touch of humor that wouldn't be there otherwise - lol. The count is well over 1500 views and there are now several other videos there - I'm enjoying the time I get in front and behind the camera, and the editing keeps getting better too!
Here is the latest video to date: forum members gathering in Lake City, Florida which was a great time for us all :)

Colleen: The best way to keep bees from following you is to stand still just a ways from the hive, the easy get bored if the object the are tracking stops. I'm sure it is partly or mostly their vision and how they preceive objects - moving objects "Contrast" with the background, as where still objects "Blend in" with it. So stand still, let them buzz you a minute and they will go away.
Now.... if you just inspected the hive or did a removal or something, chances are they are on your clothes, that is a different beast - it often takes an act of congress (or at least someone else to shoo them away) cause you can't see everywhere on your body before walking into the house.
Try the standing still thing, it works. Some workers do get a bug up their butts and will be annoying for a while, but most simply fly away :)
