doesn't that seem a little odd?  if they were AFB wouldn't they have done more damage to the colt?  if they were not, she shouldn't have gotten more than a couple of stings.

maybe she had lots of room to run away......
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

EHB can be just as mean AHB depending on the circumstances. It is just that EHB are less likely to be overtly aggressive. Also AHB don't tend to be highly aggressive until theyhave a nest to defend. Swarms of AHB behave like EHB and AHB swarms tend to be smaller.

The worst attack I ever received was EHB when I dropped the hive.
