Bees in fallen tree

We’ve had above average rain since the end of the 2019 drought such that the soil is quite saturated. Thanks to La Niña the lower than average summer temperatures weren’t enough to dry the ground up very much so we’ve seen a handful of trees just fall over. Their root systems weren’t stable enough in the weaker soil to support the trees weight/height.

This bee hive would have been about 15 metres (50 feet) above ground level before the tree fell over (and no doubt gave the bees a good bump when it landed).
