I might also plan on spending a few extra days there looking for more. :)
I am trying to talk my wife into a trip to Iceland. She wants Bermuda.

Ahh! That little girl is going to get eaten by bees! That article can't be serious, on the one hand, the article implies that this swarm is going to kill children and small animals...why does the person who wrote such nonsense put a little girl just feet away from the "potentially deadly" bees for a photo op.

Good point melilem!!
 That little girl DOES look awful CLOSE!
Hmmm...All she'd have to do is shake the limb into a box and she'd have a hive going!

your friend,

"He rang back 10 minutes later to say the parks and reserves manager Robin Pagan had instructed him to get hold of a ranger to try to deal with the bees as soon as practical this morning."

This doesn't sound very promising for the bees IMO.
