I placed the two AT 3031 microphones near a pieris bush, which was in flower, with plenty of bumblebees about. All that in a garden in Perthshire / Scotland. FP24 preamp and R-09HR.

    Hi, Can you release another long recording of bumble bees buzzing, I love that. Or wasps?

    great stuff! beautifully recorded (and processed, if you did so - I hear no unwanted background noise and the stereo image is to die for). I even liked the distant passing autos.

    I put this in the background of a live recording my band did. You can hear it here: www.impossiblecolours.com. I gave you the credit on the site, and the recording is non-commercial, but if you don't want it to be used that way, I'll gladly remove it.

    Wow, beautiful recordings of birds and bumblebees buzzing, i like this. I hope more recordings for 1 hour or over with more bees, swarm of bees buzzing. Thank you for this sound. Now when i will listening this, i will be not afraid when a bee or bumblebee will come near me, because i'm blind and when a bee, wasp or other insect come, i'm a little bit afraid.

    Nice recording! Makes me want to be in Scotland instead of New York right about now. The bumble bees are a bit scary, I was wearing headphones and had a strong impulse to wave my hand around my ear!
