I've got a sago palm/cycad in my front yard and some bees have decided to make it as their new home. The hive which I think they are developing is pretty low to the ground. The pictures linked in this topic show a community of bees that have stayed group together on the same plant for at least 3-5 days now. Here are the pictures:
The bees are about 4 feet away from the sidewalk.
I just checked at about 6:30pm today - all the bees had left and all that remained was just the white wax as you see there and a little bit of the same right under. My guess was the bees were just resting there for migration.
