Holding on tight

The recent swarm that spent 24 hours on the outside of its hive gave me the opportunity to take a few close up photos.  The bees that interested me most were those in the front rank, acting as anchors to take the weight of the bees behind them.  They stayed like that with no chance to eat or drink or change position, unlike the mobile bees behind them.
