    it's his pet adder, just sit on its head and it will raise you right up to the swarm. Every good beek needs a 40 foot adder.

    Believe me, they are easily 40 foot when you are standing right next to it when you first see it. The further away from it you are when you spot it, the smaller it is.

    But I think his adder has done been runged....
