They don't!

Listen to your spark, listen to an angry swarm of bees.
What do you hear?
It is NOT love, they coming for!

happened to me twice before... maybe just back luck that you are crossing the path of a migrating swarm? nice slow motion shot - i slowed it down further to 0.25 on YT - can see the bee actively dive bombed to avoid the prop.

If they are honey bees then let them do their thing please. Without honey bees humans will die.

Better the Spark than you!  I don't think the footage is ruined.  It's just a part of nature.

I wonder what kind of bees they are    Could they be killers bees ?  African colonized bees  ? I live in the southeastern part of the States and never had this problem. I would have to agree, they are interesting. Thanks for sharing.

My father have multiples hives of bee and what you are saying is happening to me often.  My father said that the sound of the drone disturb them.   I usually increase a bit the altitude or change the location. What can i say is that the bees are very important and must be protected. They take care of pollination of flowers thus creating a more breathble air and also an increase in production of vegetables and fruits with ~40%. Try do dont fly at low altitudine in that zones because i found out that the drone kill a lot of them (needed to clean the drone after)

They're paying homage!

Wow, they were really going after it. Is you drone a dark color? Bees are more drawn to dark colors. That is why beekeepers wear white.

Who is controlling the drone when this is happening?  Is this with Autotrack alone?

What did the bee say to the drone? "Hi Honey"?
I often find that insects investigate my spark, but ruin my footage? Nah! I do that without the insects!
