Funnel Didn't Amount to Much, (Thank God!)
Posted By: acbees, 06-03-2008, 07:42 PM

Had a swarm call to go get a good size swarm of honeybees out of a tree in a small town about 12 miles from here. Was about halfway there when this appeared. It was about 7:45 PM. No real energy in this and wasn't a threat, just a "happening" in the clouds. Happened to have the Tamron 70-300mm Di Macro on or would have missed this. Nothing artful about them, just pics of a funnel cloud. Time lapse of these 4 pics is just a little over a minute. Last one is rather blurred. Bad storms have come closer this spring than in quite a while. Tornado hit about 4-5 miles west of us last Friday and caused some damage, but no injuries.
By the way, I got a nice size swarm before the weather hit. Looks as if it's going to be a busy year for them also. Too dark to get a picture of them in the tree about 15 feet up and, with the storm coming, I needed to get 'em and get out of there.
