Could have been worse

The plan was to harvest some of the glut of blackberries which exists.
I found a bush with some large ripe fruits and as I was reaching for the largest my foot slipped into a rabbit hole. Looking down, there was a swarm of angry bees charging out of the hole.

Immediate reaction was to get the hell out of  there down the hill, swatting with the cap as I went.
First thirty yards in 3.1 seconds, well almost, I luckily managed to get away with one sting over the right eye. Near miss.
