Bee swarm at Pilot Rock

Diana from Pilot Rock, OR, sent this picture to KATU News over the weekend. She said that on Saturday "a swarm of honey bees visited our home and are still here this evening. I was outside most of the afternoon with 2 of our grandchildren and after coming outside after lunch I noticed bees buzzing and then I saw the swarm on our small bush/tree. This is the second swarm of bees I have seen in my lifetime, however, the first swarm I saw was at the Beaverton Mall about 12 years ago. This swarm is far smaller, but large none-the-less. Hope the swarm leaves soon. Any suggestions?"
