We always got stung walking barefoot in the clover. Rare to see bees now. So sad.
No idea why they were initially just after his hat, no doubt there was some pheromone or color involved, but what I found more puzzling was their persistence if following us all the way to the other side of the house (it was a big house) and waiting us out while we sat inside the vehicle. I've dealt with lots of angry bee family stinging insects, but none of them ever perused me more then a few yards from their nest. In this case we weren't even anywhere near their nest to begin with.
The next day (and several times after that) we returned to work on the same side of the house and saw no sign of them so I'm pretty sure the incident had something to do with the woman disturbing her hives that day. Still, not the kind of honey bees I would want to keep.
